Just addressing this quesiton -- you are correct that the browser does
not tell the application when it closes. What *does* happen is that
the cookie associated with that browser session is destroyed or
nullified, thus when the use reopens their browser and opens the
application again, there won't be a session cookie sent to the
application on start.
As explained above, this has nothing to do with how long the session
data may be stored on the server, it just won't be accessed if the
browser has been closed in the meantime.
