Hi All,
I have come across the following question in "Marcus Green" Mock test

"The cookie used to automatically track Servlet and JSP sessions must be called JSESSIONID"
Need to choose a Boolean Answer : TRUE OR FALSE.

It Says the answer is "FALSE"

Could any one explain me about this

Hi!

I havent started on JSP sessions but I am pretty sure that name of the cookie tracking session must be JSESSIONID.
So i am guessing "False" is incorrect.

There is a similiar statement in one of the question in HFSJ

"When using cookies for session tracking, the name of the session tracking cookie must be JSESSIONID"

I guess they mean the same thing.

Hi all !!!

I have faced the same doubt and end up agreeing with Chinmaya Chowdary about why the session MUST be named jsessionid.

take a look at this post:
