Hello..
I am using MVC for my web-app.
I have two packages:
(1)myPackage.web : Package for Controller classes (Servlets)
(2)myPackage.model : Package for Model classes (Helper classes)

Now I want to add a ServletContextListener class in my app.
In which package should I put it?

Thanks in advance..

Is it part of the model?

The Listener is used to get Data Source Name from context-init-parameters and to get a Connection using that Data Source Name, which can be used by Model classes afterwards

Your model should be compeltely independent of the user interface. In other words, if you chose to put a Swing UI on your application, would the listener class still be a useful part of the model?

In your case the user interface (UI) is a servlet application.
ServletListeners are part of the servlet spec and part of the javax.servlet. API.

Would your model package be independent of the UI if it contained classes that need to import javax.servlet classes?
