and can it create one?

if a browser does a ws: request that will be first just a http request i
guess that is then "upgraded"
But in that first request can cookies be send over? Because if a websocket
creates a http session then a jsessionid cookie must be set in the browser
 over the websocket request.
And that jsession cookie must then be used by also normal http request a
browser does to that server..

problem is that i don't want to create a session, i just want to
ServletContext to read some files.
So something like:


That context can then just return an object which i need to cast and is
then up to the container to provide.
