Honestly, I don't believe you can do that, so if your app *depends*
on that behavior, you're probably SOL :-)  However...

Assuming the reference to "Java" means a J2EE container (Websphere,
Tomcat, whatever) your developer could "fix" the problem by writing
a Filter that would insert a sequence number into each response; if
a request was received with a sequence number that didn't match the
one expected for that sessionID, use a RequestDispatcher to forward
that request to the login page.
