Subject Re: What is relation of JSESSIONID and HttpSession?
Date Wed, 30 Jan 2008 20:20:22 GMT
Always use httpSession *and* url rewriting together. The container takes 
care to track session either using url either using cookies, depending 
on client configuration. Whatever case, your code is the same, just do 
url rewriting everywhere you output links.

You don't use JSESSIONID, the container manage it.
