learning the HttpSession and session tracking using "encodeURL". It sounds pretty clear in normal servlet/jsp. But if I use struts, how does this "encodeURL" work ? In the following example --

"struts-config.xml":
<forward name="success" path="/next.jsp"/>

"my.jsp":
<form:form action="/register">
...

How can the "encodeURL()" be used in above two places ??

I know that <html:form> does a urlRewrite automatically, as does <html:link>. I'm not 100% sure, but I believe Struts also does an automatic urlRewrite for a forward.

so,

1. do you mean that, if I use struts, I do NOT need to write any code syntax like "encodeURL" anywhere ??

2. When you say it is automatic, do you mean if the browser doesn't support cookie, the URL will automatically be appended by a "jsessionid=.." ?

1. As long as you use the struts forwards and struts tags, you don't need to worry about using encodeURL.

2. In order for URL Rewriting to work, your application server must be configured to use it. The jsessionid=.. will be appended to your URL regardless of whether the client has cookies enabled or not. Whether your application server uses this parameter to keep track of sessions as opposed to cookies will depend on whether you have configured it to do so.
