Cookie Path does not set properly

Hi,

I am running 2 different applications on the same server domain, but they are both using the same js function to create the cookie. If I set the cookie through javascript in application 1 as mentioned in the code below, the cookie will have the following information.

Name: a_Cookie
Value: 1
Host: localhost
Path: /

When I try to set the same cookie in application 2, a new cookie is created with the following information.

Name: a_Cookie
Value: 2
Host: localhost
Path: /app2

How do I get it so that both applications update the same cookie and not create separate cookies? Is there a way?

Please see the JS code below

JS function



App1 JS call



App2 JS call



Any help is very much appreciated!

Thanks,

Juan

You can use the window.location to find which app is running in your JS and then create the cookie accordingly (since the two applications are running on the same server so they must have a different context path which you can use for your advantage)...
