Hi All

I have a doubt with Cookie. I have the following code in my Servlet's doGet() method:

Cookie cookie = new Cookie("username", "Sachin");
response.addCookie(cookie);
Cookie[] cookies = request.getKookies(); // read Cookies
out.println(cookies);

Now, when i am Invoking the Servlet for the first time, request.getKookies() method returns null, but for the subsequent request it is returing the Cookie Object. Could anybody tell me the reason for this?
Thanks.

The cookie, which is a client-side concept, is not created until the response is returned back to the client
