If browser supports cookie, when we use "encodeURL()", what does server store in the cookie ? Is it only the "jsessionid" ??

Another thing is -- I use windows XP, where exactly can I find and see the cookies ? please help.

Thanks.

Yes, the cookie contains the session ID. What exactly is in the cookie depends on the server, but generally that's all there is. In the case of cookies beung used, encodeURL doesn't do anything, i.e. it should leave all URLs as they are. It only appends the session ID to a URL if cookies are not enabled.

bartender David O'Meara just said this is just a "session cookies" which is stored in memory instead of disk, that's really a good news

Tools -> Options -> General (tab) -> (in the 'Temporary Internet Files' section) Settings -> View Files.

As mentioned previously, you won't see session cookies there because they are stored in memory.

If you want to see exactly what is in the session cookie, download and install the LiveHttpHeaders plugin for Fire Fox
