Something like
HttpSession s = req.getSession(false);
boolean validSession = (s != null);

Open in new window

can you print out anything related to the session?

HttpSession s = req.getSession(false);

System.out.println( s.toString());

You may try tp print s.toString() but chances are you'll get some cryptic like Session@...(some numbers or something).
 And if you print list of stored filed names - that would be meaningful:

HttpSession session = req.getSession(false);
if(session != null){
String [] ss = session.getValueNames();
for(String s: ss)System.out.println(s);
}
