HttpSessionListener in Tomcat

I am using Tomcat 5.5. I created a class that implements HttpSessionListener, but I cannot get any of the events to be raised.

The code for the class is:

package ca.fcc.ObjectiveFour;

import javax.servlet.http.*;

public class MyHttpSessionListener implements HttpSessionListener
public void sessionCreated(HttpSessionEvent anEvent)
System.out.println("MyHttpSessionListener sessionCreated invoked!");

public void sessionDestroyed(HttpSessionEvent anEvent)
System.out.println("MyHttpSessionListener sessionDestroyed invoked!");


In the web.xml I have the listener declared... but no events are raised. Here is how it is declared in the web.xml:


Any idea as to why this won't work?
