Hello Sirisha,
You can use HttpSession for user Inactivity.

-- but this won't display a message in the inactive browser -- HTTP is stateless -- your server can't randomly contact browsers who made requests to it previously. I don't think what you want is possible.
The best you can do is to invalidate the session after a certain period (check session.setMaxInactiveInterval() ) and if the person tries to contact the app after their session has been inactivated, redirect them to a login screen.
