Sometimes its useful in an application to have a list of users who are currently logged onto an application on a server.

To do this, you first need a SessionAttributeListener which listens for attributes being added to and removed from the session:

Then from within your application login, you can set a session attribute when a user logs on

You don’t need to remove the attribute on logout, as long as you are invalidating the session – this will automatically remove the attribute and invoke the attributeRemoved method of the listener.
The final step is to add an activity monitor display to your application which calls SessionAttributeListener.getActiveUsers() and displays the list.
