Session end

Dear all,
we are developing an internet based application using servlets and beans. At the start of the application, after the user is logged in, the session is started. As part of the application, lots of information is stored in the session for the particular user, (including files uploaded). Now the problem is all these information should be removed from session, files should be deleted at end of the session. Now my question is How do I detect the session end?
Thanks in advance.

Check out javax.servlet.http.HttpSessionBindingListener, especially valueUnbound().
