Cookie detection in Java

Hi all,

I can't believe there is no Java API to detect whether or not a client accept cookies.
The only solution I see is to write a cookie and then to read it to check it has been accepted.
Am I right ?.
Please tell me there is a API I did not see because I only slept 2 hours this night !!

The Servlet API allows you to manipulate cookies !

Valentin,
I'm not sure to understand your answer. (only slept 2 hours that night, remember )
Is there a kind of isCookieAccepted() method somewhere ?
Or am I compelled to code it ?

Bill, the only way that I know of to determine if the client accepts cookies is, like you said, send a cookie to the client and then try to read it back.

Incredible !!
However, it's quite a simple a useful functionality.
thanks anyway for your answers
