ApplicationSessionExpiryFilter never gets called

I have configured a Filter in the web.xml and I have a filter class.  It doesn't seem to be getting called.  I have a page just for the timeout.


public class ApplicationSessionExpiryFilter implements Filter {

    private FilterConfig _filterConfig = null;


    public void init(FilterConfig filterConfig) throws ServletException {

        _filterConfig = filterConfig;



    public void destroy() {

        _filterConfig = null;



    public void doFilter(ServletRequest request, ServletResponse response, FilterChain chain) throws IOException,

                                                                                                     ServletException {

        String requestedSession = ((HttpServletRequest)request).getRequestedSessionId();

        String currentWebSession = ((HttpServletRequest)request).getSession().getId();

        boolean sessionOk = currentWebSession.equalsIgnoreCase(requestedSession);

        // if the requested session is null then this is the first application

        // request and "false" is acceptable

        if (!sessionOk && requestedSession != null) {

            // the session has expired or renewed. Redirect request



        } else {

            chain.doFilter(request, response);




Please help.  We are already in production
