Somehow glassfish seems to be generating a session for me, even without my explicit request.

I set up a small "dynamic web project" with eclipse, with a single jsp to show the problem, which consists in the http response containing a set-cookie for the jsessionid. I have no request.getSession() call or equivalent in my code. Can someone explain what is going on here and tell me how to disable it ?

jsp (disregard the fact that it uses scripplets and not EL/JSTL...)



web.xml


sun-web.xml (generated by eclipse)


result:




Thank you in advance.

This is the default behavior for JSPs.
It's part of the JSP spec, not something specific to Glassfish.

Look at the <%@ page ...> directive documentation to see how to disable this.
