Can not retrive value from cookie

Hi, my first form of the application is


I retrive the value from the field and set it to a new cookie.


And then I disply the value after retriving it in FirstResult.java


But when for the first time the application is run, no value is displayed on the page.
And when I refresh or run the application again the get the previous value from the field.

Why is it so? I have tried all alternatives and have come to the conclusion that for the first time the value of the cookie is not set.
But to over come this confusing state I have used the FirstRequest.java controller servlet.But still I do not get a solution.
Please help.

Why do you expect the Cookie set in the response to turn up in the request to the forwarded destination?

Cookies will only turn up in requests after they have been set in the client browser - this requires that the browser actually get the response.
