hi,
I want to let my web application know when a session dies. Is there a way
to execute some code whenever the session dies for whatever reason?

You could implement a session listener.

Here's the steps I would take:

1. Upon reading that someone said I should use a "session listener", I would open a browser window and do a net search on "session listener"

2. Seeing that first result (at least on a google search) references a class named HttpSessionListener, I do a search on that.

3. This yields the javaoc for the HttpSessionListener class

4. I read that javadoc

5. Knowledge happens


P.S. A google search of the JavaRanch forums also yields 105 hits.
