I am working through Marty Hall's CoreServlets and JSP examples in the book. If I create a cookie using the default maxAge() of -1, I cannot find the cookie in the windows/cookies folder. If I create a persistant cookie then I can find the cookie. Because I cannot find the file does this imply that nonpersistant cookies are saved into memory only and not to the client hard drive? Also with the persistant cookie, if I open the file, I can only find the persistant portion (name, value) pair. Why is this? Thanks, as always.
