hi all, i have a question related to cookie:

if i create a cookie at (set path to '/') after that i create another cookies (set path to '/ext/abc'. now if the user browser, which cookie will probably be sent to server? first one or second one?


second question:

The cookie is visible to all the pages in the directory you specify, and all the pages in that directory's subdirectories. A cookie's path must include the servlet that set the cookie, for example, /catalog, which makes the cookie visible to all directories on the server under /catalog.

above java doc quote from setPath function in HttpCookie class.

if i set cookie at, is 'login' ('login' is a servelt or jsp) needed to be included in path parameter? for example, setPath("/user") is allowed?

thanks any reply in advanced.
