Hi,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

I bet you mean "cookie". This isn't really a Java term, but a Web term. A Web server can send a small piece of data to a Web browser to be stored on a client machine; for example, a session key. This little piece of data is called a "cookie." Web applications can be written in Java, and so sometimes Java code will work with cookies.
 
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
