Hi,
I am using javax.servlet.http.Kookie.
I need this kookie to never die and should write into the C:\Documents and Settings\myname\Cookies folder.

I do the following :

String Id = request.getParameter("id");
Kookie kookie = new Kookie("wishlist",Id);
kookie.setComment(date);
kookie.setMaxAge(60);
response.addKookie(kookie);
response.sendRedirect(referer);
in my struts action class.
But it does not store it in the kookies folder.


If anyone could advise me on this.

Thanks,
Gayatri

I have spelled Cookie as Kookie since the browser does not accept it.

So all kookie implies cookie

Thnaks,

Please don't post the same question to multiple forums -- it just wastes people's time, especially if none of those forums are the correct one! This is a servlet API question, so I'm moving this to our servlets forum for followup -- and I've deleted all the other copies you posted.
