CookiesAware not setting cookieMap?

I'm using the following blog post on using cookies in Struts 2

So I'm implementing CookiesAware in the following way:

However, in my Action's execute() method when I test the value of cookiesMap it's is null. I have also put a breakpoint in the setCookiesMap() method and have found that it never gets called.

Finally, I have looked at the struts-default stack and noticed that CookieInterceptor is not part of the default stack. Do we need it in order for CookiesAware to work?

Oops - I read the example too fast. The blogger states..

Both options need the CookieInterceptor to be configured for the action that needs to receive cookies.

Hope this helps someone
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
