Referring to all the listeners related to Servlet, it is a must to configure those in web.xml? Is there any listener that is not required to be configured in web.xml?

Cheers

Two listeneres need not be configured in web.xml namely HttpSessionBindingListener and HttpSessionActivationListener.

Thanks. But how does the container know that these are the listeners interested in listening for some events?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
