As an example, your application might, in a JSP file, have code like this:


   <%
     UserService userService = UserServiceFactory.getUserService();
     if (!userService.isUserLoggedIn()) {
   %>
      Please {@code <a href="<%=userService.createLoginURL("/newlogin.jsp")>">log in</a>>}
   <% } else { %>
      Welcome, <%= userService.getCurrentUser().getNickname(); %>!
        {@code (<a href="<%=userService.createLogoutURL("/")>">log out</a>>)}
   <%
     }
   %>
