It seems you have looked at the "session framework", which is a 
convenience module allowing to manipulate session information as XML. 
Cocoon itself imposes absolutely no restriction on what can be stored as 
session attributes. You can get the request object using the 
ObjectModelHelper class (in Java) or "cocoon.request" (in flowscript) 
and from there on use the traditional servlet attribute methods.
