Hi,

My knowledge of how JSF handles users session is not great, so excuse the potential stupidity of this question... I'm working on my first JSF app, and
so far it seems to be going okay. One thing I have noticed is that once a users session has expired and they attempt to access a page that references session data, the app basically keels over rather than booting them out to the login page. Should JSF be handing the session management or is it something I need to code for?

Kev.

JSF doesn't provides and it doesn't needs probably as it is built over Servlets.
You can use HttpSessionListener etc. to manage it. Check out servlet specs.

As KV said, JSF doesn't handle any Session management. What I do is use a Servlet Filter that all requests go through. This filter checks and makes sure that a) the session is valid and b)the user has privaliges for the requested page.

Filers is probably the better option.

If I am not wrong, HttpSessionListener;s sessionDestroyed() method listens only to session.inValidate() calls.
