as my topic stated, is there any reason why there is no such function exist? why we only can get a array of cookie instead of a particular one?

It would be good if they have added that method also... We will have to write self to retrieve specific cookie from Array of Cookies in Pure Java class based Servlet...

But while writing in JSP level, you have the facility to get a particular cookie using EL predefined attribute "cookie" ...Eg., ${cookie.<name of cookie>}
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
