Currently, the default age of the cookie is -1 which means it dies when browser is closed.
But long ago, may be 3 years back, someone had told me cookie's default age was 100 milliseconds or something similar, but not negative..

I just wanted ask the long term users here, was there a different default age for the cookie anytime before since the birth of servlets?
Can I find a document or anything from sun about it anywhere on net? I tried to google it, but wasn't fruitful..
Please help..
