I am new to WSAD and I thought this would be a simple question, but I am not able to find an answer anywhere. I hope one of you can help me. I am wondering if WSAD places any sort of cookies on client machines to use for session tracking purposes?

TIA

Welcome to JavaRanch!

WSAD is software. Software doesn't place cookies in the browser as it doesn't have access. A web application running in WSAD can place cookies in the browser though, just like any website.

Note that WSAD does put things in the registry for tracking purposes. It is commercial software and they need to make sure it is licensed.

Thanks for the reply. I don't think my question was clear enough - sorry. When WebSphere is running as an application server - hosting my application, when a client logs in and does whatever it is they are doing, does WebSphere - the application server part - place any cookies on the clients machine? For things like session tracking, roles, user privledges...?

Oh. I get it now.

It depends on the server settings. There are global settings for whether you want to use cookies or URL rewriting for the session. These can also be overridden by application specific settings. So, you can check in the admin console under "session management" to see what your application is doing.
