I have a problem with my application.
i have a right side html menu, and the links invokes java servlets.
when i press the menu link (any link) at the first time, the cookie doesn't send to the servlet.
but if i press again this menu link, the cookie from now and on send to the servlet.
I'm using Oracle OAS 4.0.
what can be the problem ?
Thanks !

The behaivor is expectable. A browser haven't received any cookies from your servlet, so won't send anything back until gets something. When you clicked first time, your servlet sent a cookie to browser and no it will send it back.
