How to find a session invalidation because of inactivity?
posted 12 years ago
To invalidate an HttpServlet session , I can either call its invalidate() method or because of a Session Timeout due to client inactivity. Is there a way to find out if the session was invalidated because of a call to the invalidate method or due to Session Time out? Thanks in Advance Jaydeep
Jaydeep, No, but since you control all the calls to session.invalidate(), you can set some variable. If the variable isn't set when the listener's unbound method is called, you know that the session timed out.
