[JSP] Use of Cookies


Since I can store objects in the session,
I can't see what cookies are for ...
And I hear a lot about cookies.

What are they used for in comparison with sessions,
and a concrete example will help !

Thank !!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
