You'll have to be more specific. Do you mean save credentials for the user so they don't have to enter them again? or save a session token so the user is identifyable across login sessions? or...

Give me some kind of user story to go along with this. Your question is way too vague.

When user login into the website, I want to save the username in a session, so that I can user the sessions object as pass check the credentials, later when get the role and save in session and retain the username and object through multiple pages. I usually use Session to do this. but I want to know if there is any specific advantage of using cookie over session. Which one is more secure?

Session is more secure. It's created on the server and the user can never see it. Cookies are created at the client and viewable unless encrypted.
