I want to execute some code when a session expires. Can anybody give me a hint on how to do this?

Hi, Thomas.
Use HttpSessionListener.

This can be done by using a HttpSessionListener. You can have your Java Program implement this interface. The sessionDestroyed() method here is invoked when the session expires. So you can put the required statements in this method.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
