Cookies Enabled Flag ?

Hi Folks,
Does anyone out there know if there is anything in the HTTP request and Servlet API that defines if cookies are available up front ?
The problem is that if I set a cookie I have to wait until the next request to determine if it worked which is too late.
Cheers

Not that I am aware of. You just have to try to get the cookies and see if there is any. i.e The cookie array returns zero length.
