It's ignored. The cookie simply gets discarded.
Unless you have a browser that alerts you when you have cookies disabled. Then it might ask for permission to save the cookie anyway.

good server like tomcat will detect if a cookie would get rejected and rewrite all the urls - hence why keeping info in sessin is better from that point of view - alternatively if youare creating a very high volume site it may help you to send cookies instead and require people to accept cookies. If it is an important enough app it wont matter - i cant think of many browsers that dont support cookies nowadays, although I am sure some mainframe programmers will correct me in a second saying they still use telnet.
