Session Listener

I have a doubt in Session Listener. Will the sessionDestroyed method in the SessionListener called even if the session gets inactivated itself based on the session timeout set in the web server.
Thanks & Regards

That is exactly what it means - when the server inactivates the session, that method is called.
For many purposes I like SessionBindingListener better - it is also called when the session is inactivated.
All this is detailed in the servlet API which you can download from
