Adding and retieveing values from Cookie

Hi every one.
I want to create a cookie object (from the Cookie class) and store the user information using this cookie (like JavaRanch)
but how to add values to this cookie (like username, password) and then retrieve it later ??
the Cookie constructor takes the name of the cookie and its contents (String object I think).

Are you really trying to program servlets without having the servlet API on hand? The cookie constructor takes a String name and a String value.
Cookies have a name and a single value, so you can either make separate cookies for name and for password, or come up with a way to combine name and password in a single String. If you do a setValue on a cookie, the new value replaces the old one.
I agree. Here's the link:
