URL rewriting for the links

I have my webapplication which is running on tomcat ....and as of now i havent encoded any of my links in the web application ...they are like
<a href='/'></a>

Is it my duty to keep all the URLs encoded so that if the client diables the browser this would be helpful ??

Currently then if a client disables the cookies my application should not work properly right ??

Can any one enlighten this

I'm not sure I understand the question. I take it you're asking whether or not it is your responsibility to rewrite URLs should cookies not be enabled by someone's browser?

You can JSTL <c:url> tag for each of urls in your page to make sure that url-writting is done if cookies are not enabled.
