Hello Friends,

I want to use java.net.HttpURLConnection class to send request to a servlet. Will the session be maintained on the server if i send another request through this class.

My dobut is that session information is usually stored in cookies(jsessionid), and cookies are maintained by web-browser. But if i am sending HttpRequest through java class, where is it going to store jsessionid (and the servlet has not implemented URLRewritting). WIll it be possible to browse the site using simple java class?
