Specifies that a bean is session scoped.

While SessionScoped must be associated with the built-in session context required by the specification, third-party extensions are allowed to also associate it with their own context. Behavior described below is only related to the built-in session context.

The session scope is active:

  • during the service() method of any servlet in the web application,
  • during the doFilter() method of any servlet filter, and
  • when the container calls any HttpSessionListener, AsyncListener or ServletRequestListener.

The session context is shared between all servlet requests that occur in the same HTTP session.

The session context is destroyed:

  • when the HTTPSession times out, after all HttpSessionListeners have been called, or
  • at the very end of any request in which invalidate() was called, after all filters and ServletRequestListeners have been called.

An event with qualifier @Initialized(SessionScoped.class) is fired when the session context is initialized and an event with qualifier @Destroyed(SessionScoped.class) when the session context is destroyed. The event payload is the HttpSession
