Currently, the default age of the cookie is -1 which means it dies when browser is closed.
But long ago, may be 3 years back, someone had told me cookie's default age was 100 milliseconds or something similar, but not negative..

I just wanted ask the long term users here, was there a different default age for the cookie anytime before since the birth of servlets?
Can I find a document or anything from sun about it anywhere on net? I tried to google it, but wasn't fruitful..
Please help..

as far as i read from wiki, initially browsers are not controlling the cookies as they do now... but not sure about the initiall default expire time .....

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
