Class ServletContextListener

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    EventListener, javax.servlet.ServletContextListener

    public class ServletContextListener
    extends Object
    implements javax.servlet.ServletContextListener
    Listens for webserver server starting and stopping events.

    This should be used when the deployment is into a servlet container where the webapp can be shutdown or redeployed without the JVM stopping.

    If deployment is into a container where the JVM is completely shutdown (like spring boot, runnable war or when using a servlet container that only contains the single webapp and the JVM is shutdown then this isn't required. Instead we can just rely on the JVM shutdown hook that Ebean registers.
