Subject Trouble with setting and retrieving cookie values
Date Mon, 01 Oct 2001 16:40:36 GMT
I am having a problem with setting and retrieving cookies within an action
class.  From a servlet with a simple test I can set and retrieve cookie
values, with the example code below:

Setting the cookie:

Cookie c = new Cookie("test", "testvalue");

Retrieving the cookie:

 Cookie[] cookies = request.getCookies();
 if (cookies != null && cookies.length > 0) { // Cookie(s) found
      for (int i = 0; i < cookies.length; i++) {
           if ((cookies[i].getName()).equals("test")) {
               cookievalue = cookies[i].getValue();

As soon as I put the code in an action class and I either forward, or
redirect to a jsp, the cookie information is not saved.  Does anyone have
any clues as to why the same code is not working within the action class?
Any help would be appreciated.
