How can I tell from a java web application that the "secure" and 'httponly" flags for cookies were enabled at the level of the web server (Tomcat/Websphere/Weblogic)?

We provide a web application as a product. It is important that the "secure" and "httpOnly" flags be enabled for cookies but we have no control over this - rather it is the customer's IT.

We do not handle the cookies in our web app - the web server does and it can be any (Tomcat/Weblogic/Websphere)

Is there a way in Java that our web application can check if the web server was configured for "secure" and "httpOnly"?
That way we can inform the admin that the web server is not securely configured.

Basically no.  The only thing that is returned from the browser is the name and the value of the cookie.  If you have gone to one of the pages in Firefox, you can look at the cookies in Tools -> Options -> Privacy and see if the cookie requires an encrypted connection.  I can't find anywhere that you can check to see if 'httponly' is set.
