I don't think that calling the clear method in the servlet's destroy method
does the job. The destroy method may be invoked by a background thread of the
application server and would remove the ThreadLocal value only from this
background thread, not form the HTTP worker threads.

I agree with Marcel that a servlet filter is the best option:

public class ClearMDCFilter implements Filter {

    public void doFilter(ServletRequest request, ServletResponse response,
FilterChain chain) throws IOException, ServletException {
        try {
            chain.doFilter(request, response);
        } finally {



This way, you don't have to care about removing all keys you set somewhere in
your code.
