[opencms-dev] Logging out a Web User

Hi all,

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

I'm having trouble logging out a web user.

Logging in:
	cms.loginWebUser( username, password );	<-cms is a CmsObject

Logging out (by logging back in as Guest):
	cms.loginUser( "Guest","");			<-cms is a CmsObject

Determining who the user is:
	String currentUser = cmsjsp.user( "name" );	<- cmsjsp is a CmsJspActionElement

When I want to log out (by logging the user back in as Guest), the cmsjsp.user("name") code continues to return the old name of the web user, not Guest.

Until that point things work as expected. First visiting the site, the user method returns "Guest", after logging in it returns the name of the web user. Just after logging in again as Guest do things go wrong.

Is there a different way I should log out a web user? I didn't find out in the API.
