>> Hello Konstantin Kolinko,

(the URL encoded link did not contain the JSESSIONID).

>>     </cookie-config>
>>     <tracking-mode>COOKIE</tracking-mode>
>>   </session-config>
>> But the first time I hit the web app, I'm still getting JSESSIONID in the URL.

might be causing the problem.   It found some problems in the Tag

 I have no further errors in Catalina log or any other logs files.

It is the actual Id that is being printed as jsessionid there. It
shall be read using that method. If debugging is hard,  adding some
logging with some stacktraces and recompiling can help.
