You don't have to create yourself the cookie.
You create the HttpSession with HttpServletRequest.getSession() or HttpServletRequest.getSession(boolean)
Then, the session is created and the cookie JSESSIONID is added to the HttpServletResponse.
So, the next time you'll invoke a servlet or JSP in the same Context (with the same browser),
the Cookie JSESSIONID will be attached to your request.

If you have clustered your Tomcat, the JSESSIONID will have a suffix .<jvmRoute>,
so, if you use the mod_jk to load-balance your tomcat clustered servers, 
your request will be sent to the same tomcat (as the precedent).
