Why? If those are the tools that the servlet API gives you, why are they not sufficient?

I can see why cookies might not be desirable, because some clients won't accept cookies, but why isn't URL rewriting acceptable?

Perhaps more importantly, why would you want to write your own way and maintain it when the servlet API gives you two ways to do it out of the box?
