Spring Security Logout Example

By Abhijit Ghosh on Jul 17, 2013 11:13:01 PM

Spring Security provides Logout Handling Service for logging out by navigating to a particular URL (by default /j_spring_security_logout). LogoutFilter starts processing when a request comes for /j_spring_security_logout url and delegates to LogoutHandler(s) to perform the actual logout functionality like clearing security context, invalidating session, etc. Based on logout configuration, a redirect will be performed to the URL logout-success-url after logout.

In this example, we'll integrate Spring Logout handling mechanism in Spring Security 3 Hello World Example to demonstrate logout functionality.
