if you google for 'jsp cookie' you will find

If so, where do I find it? If not, how can I implement it? My guess is that

In any jsp page you can use include directives and inline java (scriptlet).
Alternatively you can implement java beans to perform the authentication

Any web application that uses authentication needs to perform these steps at
every request (page view)
