I'm setting cokkies through my servlet. But before doing that, I want to confirm whether cookies are enabled in the browser or not. If cookies are not enabled, I want to display a message in the borwser to enable the cookies first.
How can I check whethere cookies are enabled or disabled by the browser?

I don't think you can do that except by setting a cookie and seeing if it comes back with the next request. If it does then cookies are enabled, if it doesn't then they're probably not.

the alternative is URL rewriting, however exposing the session id in the request can open up security issues.
