Subject Re: Tomcat - Automatically writes a session?
Date Tue, 20 Jan 2004 20:41:20 GMT

tomcat sents automatically a cookie named jsessionid for session maintain to a 
browser. with cookies="false" as a context attrribute you disable this 
behaviour

<Context path="" docBase="ROOT" cookies="false"/>

from tomcat documentation:

------
cookies	

Set to true if you want cookies to be used for session identifier 
communication if supported by the client (this is the default). Set to false 
if you want to disable the use of cookies for session identifier 
communication, and rely only on URL rewriting by the application.
