Hi everybody
can some one please tell me about the HttpSessionBinding Listener. & how can I use it in my project.
I am using a servlet which first verifies a user then gets info from a database regarding that user.
Afterwards pass that info to a couple of JSP files.
I had thought of using simple HttpSession object's setAttribute() & getAttribute() methods for the project.
I need some feedback whether I am going on the right track or not??

HttpSessionBindingListener is an Interface which needs to be implmented by classes of those objects who want to be notified when a session object is created/removed.
Simply, we can write code that gets executed whenever those objects are put/removed into/from session.
As for passing info about the user to subsequent JSP pages, you can use the session mechanism to remember between pages.
