I'm using weblogic 9.2, struts and I am managing the timeout in the web.xml
When the timeout occur I am redirected to the login page.
My problem is I want to show a message like "Timeout! please login again" how can I achieve this?
I am not 100% sure of what I am saying now so you want to check.
Upon timeout, the session is invalidated. Hence sessionDestroyed(HttpSessionEvent e) should be called.
By implementing the HttpSessionListener, then checking inactive time you should be able to achieve what you are looking for.

if I use a SessionListener and forward the user on the sessionDestroyed method my user will be kicked out without pressing any button and I don't want to force the logout like that, I will prefer to do not implement costom code and live the session managment to my app server
I was wondering if there it can be achieved by configuring web.xml or something
for instance, in my web.xml I've my login form configured like this:
I don't think there is a way completely through web.xml for what you are trying to achieve
You should try giving a message in form of a pop-up surface on the page when you move away from the page. this is usually done by keeping a div in the page in hidden form and showing it when the session times out. you can also use java script to call the login form in this pop up message itself.
