Subject Tomcat 4.0 - HttpSessionListener lockup in sessionDestroyed()
Date Thu, 04 Oct 2001 14:14:21 GMT
I'm noticing some strange behaviour with a class that implements 
HttpSessionListener and is registered in my apps webapp.xml file as a 

When I call session.getAttribute("xxx") on a session passed into 
sessionDestroyed() the thread seems to lock.

I've simplified my class as a test case and it never makes it to the 
System.out.println("attribute shown") statement.

I'm running tomcat 4.0 final on windows 2k. I've received the same 
results on both jdk 1.3.1 and 1.4 beta.

My test includes two JSP pages: one sets a value in the session, another 
calls session.invalidate().

output from stdout.log and class definition are included bellow.

Thanks in advance....
