Hi,

My simple question is whether I can read cookies set by javascript in JSP and viceversa?

Thanks.

Vikas,

The answer to your question is yes.

And now I will anticipate your follow-up question: How?

Hint: use the implicit request object in JSP, figure our how that relates to the HttpServletRequest object and how to access its method for retrieving cookies from the request object. You will likely wind up looping through a Cookie[] array.

In javascript use the cookie property of the document.

Good luck!

Cookies are cookies. Whether set in Javascript, or by other means, they all use the same underlying mechanisnms.
