please refer the url at http://docs.oracle.com/javaee/6/api/javax/servlet/http/Cookie.html#setMaxAge(int)

it says that "negative value means that the cookie is not stored persistently and will be deleted when the Web browser exits. A zero value causes the cookie to be deleted".

i did not get the difference between the two. in both cases cookie will be deleted. whats the difference ? Please help

Immediate versus when the browser closes.
