How can I set a cookie that is persisted only for the duration of the client's session?
Govind Seshadri You can create and set a cookie in the usual way. For example, if you are using a scriptlet, you can specify:
<% Cookie aCookie = new Cookie("aName","aValue"); aCookie.addCookie(); %>
If you do not explicitly set a lifetime for the cookie using cookie.setMaxAge(), the cookie is automatically deleted when the user closes his browser.
