An easy way to find out if cookies are enabled AND working is
to set something in a bean scope=session , refresh to a different side
and check if the session.isNew()=true or if the usedbean has reconstructed
( singleton counter )


session.isNew() will allways return true, because the session can't not be
tracked without the cookie
(ofcourse only if you are NOT USEING urlEncode() ) [That's what i learn from
last weeks posting :-)]

Your bean will be constructed because the session is new. new session -> new

Make something out of it.. :)
