When should the HttpSessionBindingListener be used versus the HttpSessionAttributeListener? I know I am missing something, but the two listeners seem somewhat repetitive. Is the Binding Listener based on the deprecated Value methods? I probably missed it but I have looked at the JavaDocs, the O'Reilly tutorial, and the Specs over the last couple of weeks. Thanks!

I believe it goes something like this. If a class implements the HttpSessionBindingListener, an object of that class will be notified when it is bound or unbound to the session.
If a class implements the HttpSessionAttributeListener, that object will be notified if any objects are added, removed or replaced in the session.

Hi,
The difference is that HttpSessionBindingListener can be implemented to notify any object, while HttpSessionAttributeListener is only used for attribute list.
