If you worry how come that application previously worked but now it 
doesn't, I can think of at least two reasons:

1. HttpServletResponse buffer size is determined by the server at 
runtime, and for different reasons now your server decides to use 
smaller buffer than earlier, so it gets filled and committed before you 
set a cookie.

2. You fill the buffer with dynamic data (say, from database) and that 
data is now bigger than earlier and the buffer gets filled and committed 
before you set a cookie.

IOW, the only good way is to set a cookie is before writing anything to 
the response, unless you have precise control on the HttpServletReponse 
buffer which is rarely the case.
