Why would you not want to create a session? In general it's not the presence/lack of session that indicates login, but rather a valid user/etc. object in the session.

In general, you don't want to access a JSP page directly in an MVC app, rather go through an action. IIRC the default request processor will create a session for you, providing another reason to re-think your approach.
