Is there any way to detect the cookies from a servlet invoked by the <SERVLET> tag from a shtml page?

Because the HTTP header information is written before the embedded servlet is executed, embedded servlets cannot perform any functions which require writing to the HTTP header. For this reason, the following restrictions apply to servlets embedded in .shtml pages:

  • No cookies
  • No redirects
  • No errors or status (HttpServletResponse.sendError() or sendStatus())
  • No setHeader()
  • No setting of the content length
