HttpSessionListener is not getting invoked

I am supporting a j2EE application
The main components in the application is

Java 1.4
Struts 1.2.7
Weblogic 8.1 sp 4
Oracle 10 G


The sessionDestroyed method of HttpSessionListener class which is implemented by Local class is not getting invoked.

It is not happening frequently, it is happening for some of the user in the application once in a blue moon

In the application, when a user login into the application the execute method of Action is storing the Session set Maxinactive Interval as the following as

HttpSession hs = httpRequest.getSession(true);
String expireTime = ConfigProperties.getConfigValues(SESSION_EXPIRE_TIME);
int iexpireTime = Integer.parseInt(expireTime);

So when the User login the expire Time is stored in Http Session

The Application´┐Żs Listener class code is the following one

public class SessionListener implements HttpSessionListener {

public void sessionCreated(HttpSessionEvent event) {


public void sessionDestroyed(HttpSessionEvent event) {
String METHOD_NAME = "sessionDestroyed";
LogoutBusiness logoutBusiness = new LogoutBusiness();

HttpSession hs = event.getSession();
Session session = (Session)hs.getAttribute(GlobalConstants.SESSION);
if(session != null){
UserProfile userProfile = session.getProfile();
if(userProfile != null){
String LoginID = userProfile.getLoginID();
}catch(Exception e){

And the entries in web.xml file is the following one

Web .xml Entries

<display-name>APPLICATION NAME</display-name>



<servlet >
<servlet-class> common.utils. StartUpServletJAVA</servlet-class>


So can body help out to find the root cause of the issue
