URL rewriting for session tracking was invented for clients that do not 
support cookies. It basically means that a HTTP server rewrites all URLs 
(links) in (HTML) documents it serves to include the session ID. As 
HttpClient is content agnostic (it does not expect HTML, nor does it 
parse HTML) support for those URLs is up to the component that parses 
the content. The only point where HttpClient comes in contact with 
rewritten URLs is the Location header in redirects. HttpClient does not 
modify those URLs in any way and is thus "compatible" with URL rewriting.

HttpClient does not implement SSL. SSL support is handed off to the Java 
Secure Sockets Extension (JSSE). All major JSSE implementations (Sun, 
IBM) support SSL sessions. Please see the documentation of the JSSE 
implementation of your choice.
