Hi, I have following doubts regarding session tracking by web server. 1. Does the session maintained at the server is unique for every browser instance, or a session is same for the requests coming from a particular machine.(JSP session is browser based or the client machine based) 2. If I am using cookies while sending my request to server , will it be different for different browser instances. If not manipulation of cookies at server side will affect all the browser instance. Pl clear this doubt. Thanks in advance
HttpSession identity is tracked by a unique ID associated with a cookie - or - a tag created by URL-rewriting. If by a cookie, it will be unique to a particular browser. The servlet container does cookie setting and reading for you, but you have to handle URL-rewriting by your program.
