I am adding some additional functionality to something that someone did who has left the company.
He was using Web Macros under tomcat (webapps/application/WEB-INFO: code, templates, etc).

He has something called login.html which uses a compiled program to set a cookie
(response.addCookie( "UserLevel", "value") ) which adds a cookie called UserLevel with a
value retrieved from logging in. His other java code does a request.getCookies() and goes
the cookies to find "UserLevel" from which he then gets the values.

I am adding on in JSP (rather than web macros). I can't really rewrite what he did. I have
the user
go to his login page and login, and then type the url of my jsp (which is under the same application
as the above, but under jsp). My code does the same thing, does getCookies[] and looks for
Problem is, it does not find it. When I do the Edit->Preferences->"Show Cookies", UserLevel
is there
with the correct value, but all my java jsp code can find is the session ID.

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong, or how I can get the recently-added cookie?

I am using firefox.
