Timeout listener

I'm using a listener to determine when a session has expired (i.e. sessionDestroyed method of HttpSessionListner).

What is the best way to redirect to a (session expired message) web page when a session has expired?

I'm trying to call a servlet but apparently doesn't work due to some subtlety in the session expiration.

Also, I need the code only to work for timeout's... not when destroy the session by logging out.

Use the meta refresh header in combination with ${pageContext.session.maxInactiveInterval}.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
