Hi, friends. Is there any event listener to listen to the session creation and destroyment event? And another is that how to fetch header information set by HttpServletResponse interface?

U can get it using response.getAllHeaders() function. This will return an Enumeration. U can iterate through it.
And u can implement HttpSessionBindingListener interface in the object that u are binding to the session. There are 2 methods in this interface. valueBound() and one more method to listen to unbound event. U can override these methods.
I agree. Here's the link:
