Is this 2.2 of the servlet api?

If so, where did you get it?

As of version 2.2 - just checked - get/putValue have been deprecated. No 
idea why.

The problem I have is that the same client will be making repeated 
requests, which may or may not be in the same session - and rather than 
play around with cookies etc. I felt that implementing my own class to do

As usual, YMMV ;)
