> if Cookies are disabled within the Browser the servlet container (like Tomcat) will usually
switch to URL rewriting, by adding the JSessionID to the URL.
> This is dangerous because users tend to copy URLs from their browser and post them in
chat or public forums, thus allowing someone else to hijack their session.
> Therefor it is best practice to ensure that a sessionID will not be included within the
URL.
