hi all,
if i add a cookie with a same name twice what would happen?
i can try this but not now so i posted this question.
i believe that if cookies are maintained in Hashtable by the WebServer then it will overwrite the older one but if not then i don't know.
this question came across as one of my friends asked me this but i am too sure about my belief and i wont get time to test it myself
please throw some light on this.
thank you.

Yes, if you add a cookie with the same name as an existing one, it is replaced.

I think that's not exactly true, but I'm not an expert on cookies.

Should create 2 cookies with the same name.

hi Garrett,
yes. you are right. i tried the similar code. it creates two cookies if we set domain to be different.
so i guess the servlet container might be comparing two Cookie objects (not just their names) before putting cookies into response.
sounds reasonable.
thanks for your help.
regards
