I've seen a few answers to your question suggesting that you use a servlet
that loads on startup.  I have another suggestion that you may prefer to
emulate "global.asa": implement ServletContextListener and


  ...sends you events when the webapp starts and ends.


  ...sends you events when a session is created or destroyed.

You'll find javadocs for these items in the following path with a default
tomcat installation, obviously relative to the root of your installation:


To use them, you'll need to add appropriate XML elements to web.xml (refer
to a tutorial or the web.xml DTD).  It's simple and works well.
