Wow, a new book of the Head First series is available (just kidding, I think you are talking about Head First Servlets and JSP).
i can't see anywhere that it adds session ID to the end of url?
Did you check the output of the URL servlet in the browser, the link that it generates (which is by the way wrong as there is no wrapping <html> and <body> tag) must have the session ID appended to it...

Make sure you disable cookies in your browser.
In IE8 even after disabling cookies i can not see the session id appended at the URL and upon seeing the request monitor in Netbeans the cookie is sent by the client.I am not sure how IE8 accepts cookies even after i disable it.
