Welcome to JavaRanch.

On your way in you may have missed that we have a policy on screen names here at JavaRanch. Basically, it must consist of a first name, a space, and a last name, and not be obviously fictitious. Since yours does not conform with it, please take a moment to change it, which you can do right here.

As to your question, I'm not sure what you mean by an "HTTP-only cookie". Cookies are used only with HTTP, not with other protocols. I'm going to move the question to the Struts forum.

Try putting in a context.xml file in the META-INF folder.
In that using a <context> tag. This has an attribute called "cookies". Set "true" or "false" to get the desired behaviour out of your web-app

Your name still does not conform to the JavaRanch Naming Policy. Please review the policy and update it appropriately. This is your second warning.
