Subject Re: Session lifecycle listener in cocoon?
Date Sun, 11 Sep 2005 16:39:26 GMT
It can be even easier. In my app I have a class that implements 
HttpSessionBindingListener. It gets stored in the session and I anchor 
all my session variable in it. When the session is terminated it gets 
called and it cleans up all the objects it knows about. You don't have 
to modify web.xml to do this.
