What is Cookie in

   Cookie is a small amount of memory used by web server within client system.

Cookie can be classified into 2 types

                       1. In-memory cookie

                       2. Persistant cookie

1. In-Memory Cookie :   The Cookie placed within browse process memory is called in-memory cookie.

  •    It is temporary cookie specific to browser instance. Once browser will be closed, cookie will be erased.
  • Cookie data will be accessible to all the web pages with client request.
  • .Net is providing HttpCookie class for sending cookie or reading cookie.
     Sending Cookie : 

                   HttpCookie obj = new HttpCookie("Name");

                                       obj.value = "100";

                  Response. Appendcookie(obj);

     Reading Cookie submitted by client : 

                      HttpCookie obj = null;

                                       obj = Request.Cookie["Name"];

                            if ( obj == null)

                              // No cookie submitted       
                                obj.value ;
