Hi,

In the sessionDestroyed method of SessionListener, forward to the signup page(whatever you want) using the Servlet Context's request dispatcher.

You can write a filter, which forwards to login page, if theres no session.

You can't - there will never be a request when a session times out and is invalidated by the servlet container because initial processing of a request resets the timer for the matching session.

Think about this:

How will you identify a request as belonging to a recent user whose session timed out versus a request from a brand new user?

There is no way you can do this using ONLY the session mechanism.

I suggest you could use c ookies just like commercial sites do. Amazon recognizes me because my browser has (one or more) long-lived c ookie specific to the Amazon URL.

See the JavaDocs for java.servlet.http.C ookie for an introduction on how to create your own c ookies. Search for RFC 2965 for the complete rules on c ookies.
