I do not know whether one should know abt HttpSessionListener as now it is not a interface in Servlet2.3 as per Sun site API documentation
http://java.sun.com/products/servlet/2.3/javadoc/index.html
So anyone .. what to do ??
should one know details of HttpSessionListener ??
Or questions are not asked abt it ?
TIA

Hello Ravish,
My opinion is you should know all of the listeners and their methods, when their methods will be called, what events they accept, and if they're configured in the deployment descriptor.
The HttpSessionListener is very similar to the context listener, so it shouldn't be difficult to remember.

Hope that helps!

THanks a lot Brian
but.. its not in the API .. so it means you can use it in real programming for servlets 2.3
