Hi, I'm testing out a servlet which will track the user name from a html page.

The servlet is supposed to list the cookie with the user name.

However, when I run the Netbean IDE, it shows me error at the request.addCookie(c);



What part have I done wrongly?

it shows me error at the request.addCookie(c)

Posting the error would help a lot.

Check the following : Is there a addCookie method in HttpServletRequest ? If not, where is this method ?

The error appeared in netbean IDE is just red color so you know there's mistake at that line.

And also when I run the html file, it gives me a blank with nothing appear there.

May I know how to create the addCookie method?

You don't want to *create* the method, you want to know where it actually *is*.

Hint: There's no point in adding a cookie to a *request*--a new cookie would get sent *back* to the client.
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
