force logoff when sessiontimeout expires

Is there a way to force a logoff when the web.xml sessiontimeout limit is reached?  Currently the browser will show the last displayed information until the users clicks on something else.  We're hoping like with a bank it will auto log users off.

On that same note but less important is there a way to display a warning for inactivity logout?

Hi John,

There isn't any Atlassian documentation for this, however, I found a similar discussion over on StackOverflow that may be of assistance titled servlets.  In addition there is another article titled Tomcat session expired handling that may be of assistance as well.

Take a look at the linked articles and they should provide clues as to what the next steps are.
