You will have to use the HttpSessionContext Interface which allows you to
get a session object from the sessionID.
The problem is that this approach was deprecated in the 2.1 API because
probably it is a security risk to retrieve sessions given a session ID.
Unfortunatelly there is no other way, and it seems that the Servlet Engine
HAS to support URL rewriting , otherwise session tracking with cookies
disabled is imposible.
I hope that URLRewriting will be supported in the next version of Tomcat.
It's strange that it is not working in the current version because in
JServ1.1 URLRewriting was working fine..

Subject: Session Tracking

Is there a way to hold a session even if the server won't support the URL
rewriting and browser doesn't allow cookies.

Can I include session ID as a hidden parameter and get the session using
session ID in the next page.
If so, how can I get the session using the sessionID.

Thanks in advance,
