Subject Re: Perl Authentication Handler and Cookie Issue
Date Tue, 20 Feb 2007 18:24:24 GMT
Sumit,
Fetching the cookie has nothing to do with the Perl handlers. They are
setting the cookie. You could check this with a small program such as:

#!/point/to/your/perl -T
include CGI;
use vars qw{$query}; #
use vars qw{$cookie};
$query = new CGI;
$cookie = $query->cookie("YOUR COOKIE NAME") || "";
print $query->header();
print "cookie was:$cookie";
print $query->end_html();


Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with Java JSP, but do a search on 'java
cookies' to find out how to read cookies from Java.
