Java Servlet addCookie Example

In this tutorial you will learn how to add a cookie in a response and how to get form the request.

To add a cookie in response there is a method addCookie() of HttpServletResponse interface that adds a specified cookie in response. And to get a cookie there is a method getCookies() of HttpServletRequest interface that returns all the Cookie objects, in an array, sent by a client with the request.

Example :

Here I am giving a simple example which will demonstrate you to how to use these methods. In this example I am trying to do subtraction the two numbers at the same servlet and using the same these numbers want to add on another servlet. For this I have taken a ServletConfig and ServletContext references which will help in to carry the requested value from one servlet to another servlet. But the main thing is that I want to adds these value only when the user is valid for this I create and add a cookie in response object of CookieExample1Sub.java example and in CookieExample1Add.java gets the cookie and matched with the name.
