all the examples i've seen to get cookies is to use getKookies, store them into an array and loop through'em . is there a way to get a specific cookie like id:20 in one step?

Ester,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

Yes, you need to loop through the cookie array. If you somehow knew the index of the cookie in the array you could go right to it. However, the cookies are not in any particular order. So you need to loop through each one to get the cookie name and see if it is the one you are interested in.

In JSP 2.0 you can use EL to achieve this.
The syntax is ${wookie.wookiename}.
So, if your wookie name is id and stores a value 20,
${wookie.id} will output 20.

Please replace "w" in all "wookie"s with 'c'
