Hi all,

Probably a beginners question this one, but I'm not sure about the answer even after reading the the mails about it in this forum.

When we are using HTTP-sessions is a servlet application, it is most of the time doen by using cookies, or by URL-rewriting.

When we use cookies, is this then a persistent cookie or a memory cookie in (this is wat I think) and what is its name and can I access it? In case it's a persistent cookie what client-directory is it placed when using Internet Explorer.

regards,

Ronald

The first choice for every server I know of is cookies.

They are in-memory cookies. (session cookies).
Because of this, you can't see them on the client machine.

You can, however, watch them being passed back and forth if you install the LiveHTTPHeaders for Firefox.
