Hi all,
I want to track session using url rewriting. I have cookies support disabled on my browser. Please give an example of how to perform url rewriting in servlets. Also I want to know what is the difference between EncodeURL and EncodeRedirectURL.

in case of encodeURL requested URL is appended with session id for each request,encodeRedirectURL is equvalent to sendRedirect when cookies won't supported in client machine.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
