3. how to set Persistant Cookies

I think cookies automatically contain persistance. Looking back at my notes from class I noticed a statement that mentions that a cookie is sent back as part of the header. You need to make sure you send the cookie (res.addCookie(...)) before you send the body of the HTML. Also It may be a better choice to use the HTTPSession object because ...

cookies are just set of name and string value pair. You definitely can put more than one cookie, but you have to set it one by one in jsp. Here is some notes from netscape about cookie specs.

Browsers don't really care (and probably have no idea how to find out) which type of software runs a server. They simply send whatever cookies they have for that domain with each request. So as long as the domain is the same, the cookies will be sent no matter what the server software is.
