    You may be required to implement custom Manager (see 
org.apache.catalina.Manager interface), where you'll put your session id 
generation logic. But if you are not absolutely forced to use that 
old-fashined url-rewrite style, you should use session mechanism 
described in Servlet spec. That spec also mentions url-rewrite solution, 
when a user have switched cookie off, but still it is advisable to use 
response.encodeURL(String) method.
    Read description of 
javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse.encodeURL(String) for a more 
advanced explanation.
