Cross browser Compatibility -Cookie problem

Posted on 2011-03-23

Hi,

    I'm developing a Mobile Application which is having cross browser compatibility issue

1. I have mobilelogin.jsp where I set some cookie value (Customer ID). After successful validation this cookie value must be read and other operations must be done.

2. The code I've written works perfectly in Firefox but in Safari,Chrome,Opera I don't get the cookie value at all, hence the application does not work.

Please refer the Code sections (mobilelogin.jsp, validate.js) lookup.jsp I haven't provided

3. Is there any browser specific snippet has to written? I fail to understand why doesn't it work in other browsers (except FF).

Any inputs will be highly regarded.

Thanks,
Rio
