Hi all-
How can I tell if a cookie is permanent vs. temporary?
I understand that a maxage of -1 means browser session only.
Is there a setting for permanent or is 'permanent' just a long-term persistent cookie?
thank you,
Max Tomlinson

I am not aware of any method that lets you set the maxage of a cookie permanently. You can just set it to as long as you want. For one year, you can do yourCookie.setMaxAge(31526000) or yourCookie.setMaxAge(60*60*24*365). I am sure you get the idea....

Hey Bosun-
Thanks for the response. So it looks like I test for maxage of -1 (temp. cookie) otherwise I have to see if it has expired.
