 How unique are the Session ID's?

Just messing around with sessions in my Java Servlet and I was wondering how
unique the session id's are thaat are generated. The reason I'm asking is
that I was planning on sending the session id's to a database as a primary
key - but if they repeat thenselves, then that's not much use -

any ideas?

They most likely will, depending on the scale of the id.  Especially at
deployment time (unknown servlet engine), I've seen many repeats.
