You could use a Listener.
 import javax.servlet.http.HttpSessionListener;
 import javax.servlet.http.HttpSessionEvent;
 public class SessionCounter implements HttpSessionListener {
    public void sessionCreated(HttpSessionEvent event) {
        // here is where you can add user to a data structure
    }
    public void sessionDestroyed(HttpSessionEvent event) {
       // here is where you can remove a user 
    }
 }

It means we can create a hashmap at global level and store all users which are accessing our application.
based on the size of the map we can find out the current users at a given time.
Am i correct?

Yes, you could create a application-scoped variable that would be accessible in your JSPs.
There is an example at

Look at my accepted solution. But, your case will simpler. You don't need the Filter.

Is there any difference between using listener and filter?

Yes. A Filter doesn't listen to session events.
