For web applications in J2EE 1.3 or later containers,
ServletContextListener provides the callback registration you are
looking for, in the contextDestroyed() method.  A web framework that
utiizes the underlying libraries you mention should be calling the
cleanup methods automatically.

For pre-J2EE 1.3 containers, Struts supports a similar concept called
PlugIn, whose destroy() method is called when the destroy() method of
the base servlet is called.
