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());

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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);
}

Open in new window
