Hi people, The servlet 2-4 specifications state that a server must be able to track sessions ,therefor most servers fall back on URL rewiting when cookies are disabled by the browser. Is there any other method by which servers keep a track of sessions apart from the two above. I have been reading HFSJ 2 edition ,in its mock exam, Q.14 it states that server may not implement URL rewriting ,so how else will it track sessions if Cookies are disabled.
As far as I know and for the sake of completeness, the session tracking is inherently implemented in the SSL protocol. So using HTTPS connection can be considered as an alternative way to obtain session tracking without using cookies or url rewriting.
