Hello everyone!!
I am new to java,as such having problems in coding.Hope you all will be there to help me
Right now i am facing a problem in processing cookies with JSP.
I have to take username and password from a form and store them in cookies and read from the cookies on the other page. and a delete button which deletes the cookies.
I am getting a null value for the username and password after i kill the browser and open the page in new browser.
If someone comes up with the complete code immediately, it will be a great help and highly appreciated!!

Hi syed,
By default cookies expire as soon as the user exits the browser application.
So u have set the age of the cookies. using setMaxAge(name)-this sets the time remaining(in seconds) before the cookie expires.
Hope this helps U out
