I get a very frequent problem in my web application, which relates to a user's session timing out.

Is it somehow possible to determine when a particular user's session was timed out by the app server ?
Is it possible to maybe write a System.out.println() or a logger statement, saying that the "HttpSession of XYZ user timed out at DDMMYY HH:MI:SS", just before the session gets destroyed?

I am aware that the newer specifications for servlets do offer certain classes like HTTPSessionListner and HTTPSessionAttributeListner.. but my application is on specification 2.1 of servlets, which doesn't have these classes.

Any ideas people ?

Best Regards,
Anupreet
