JSP Session Handling

Hi Experts,

I would like to check whether a client machine is supporting sessions or not. If not, what would be the best way to handle sessions in JSP? I further need to know, how i can maintain sessions using URL Rewriting.

Awaiting for your comments.

Regards,
Vijay T. Prabakar

I think your really looking to determine if a client supports cookies, if they don't then you would want to use url rewriting.

Yeah! If there is no support for cookies, I would like to switch to URL rewriting. Can anybody provide some information about this.

Hi,

I would like to have an web application which automatically enables URL Rewritting whenever cookies are not supported on the client machine. I saw some articles on URL Rewritting which speaks about adding the session id to the URL.

I would like to know, is it possible to track the other session variables just by having the session id in the URL or would I have to add every session variable along with the URL.

Please advice.

You would have to add every session variable to the url if you can't write a cookie.
