i am trying t use cookies in servlets.Everytime i am trying to check the condition such as if(cookie==null).This condition is never getting satisfied even after clearing all the cookies of that browser and sending request for the first time.How do i satisfy the condition???

Cookie[] cookie = request.getCookies();

if(cookie==null){out.println("there are no cookies in the browser");}

the above if condition is never getting satisfied.

Exactly how are you getting this reference "cookie"?

Without more code we have no idea what you are trying to do.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
