Hi I'm beginig working with cookies in Java.

I have some weird behaviours. I'm learning with a testing cookie. First, I have set the expiration time of my test cookie (setMaxAge()) in the cookie creation before add it to the response. I need to recover the expiration date of the cookie later, but when I do, the method I guessed that was intended for this (getMaxAge()) always return -1;

Another think I don't understand it's that in spite of the -1 returned by getMaxAge() the cookie expires at correct time (internet explorer and firefox). Also I see the correct expiration date of the cookie with internet explorer (in temporary folder) but with firefox (cookies window wiew) it says that the cookie will expire at session ending (in spite of it expired in the set time).

Please help, I'm a bit annoyed about these behaviours.
