Anybody how the session id will be transfered in HTTPSession of servlet, if url rewritten and cookies are allowed?
If URL rewritten and cookies both are not allowed means, how this transfer of ID from server to client will happen?

Another way to manage session is using hidden variable. Check servlet tutorial for that.

URL rewriting should occur on the server. This means that you can not "disallow" this.
Normally the prefered way is to send the sessionid via a cookie (using the http headers). If this is not possible the server will try to maintain the sessionid via url rewriting. This means that the programmer will have to rewrite all urls that go to the client(browser) via URLEncoder.encodeURL().
It is possible to pass the session id via a hidden field.
