Applet failing to send HttpSession

I have an applet opening a connection to a servlet, sending it a Table object. The servlet gets the
HttpSession object to allow the Table data to be stored for the appropriate client. This arrangement
has worked for a long time. I assumed that the: new URL(applet.getCodeBase(), servlet_path).open.Connection
was providing the HttpSession object.

Recently, request.getSession(false) is returning null. However, the applet is still sending valid Table data.

My question is am I making the correct assumption as to how the applet provides the servlet with the session object?

Settings:
connect.setDoOutput(true);
connect.setUseCaches(false);

The client does not send a HTTPSession, it sends a request header containing the unique id of the session. The session object is maintained by the servlet container.

Therefor you should be looking at the request headers sent by the applet.
