sticky module does not deal with jsession cookie. It creates a cookie
on its own which indicates which backend has been used and nginx will
always use the backend from the cookie.
If no cookie are sent (first time), nginx will use standard round
robin to choose one server and then send back a cookie indicating
which backend server has been used.
If the backend from the server is down, classic round robin takes
place and a new cookie is sent with the new backend to use.
