Can a class at the same time be a Servlet and a Listener.If so how they should be described in the DD.
like
public class ManageSession extends HttpServlet implements HttpSessionListener{//code here}

It's possible, but why would you do so? Also note that you then need to be careful about how things are initialized in that class, since there will be more than just a single instance of it.

You'd declare it same way you'd declare any other servlet and any other listener.

There was post here a few months ago by someone who tried to do just that and had no end of troubles. It's simply a bad idea. Assuptions about one-half of the class were incrorrect for another. There is no good reason to try and do this.
