Here’s a small class that you can use instead of Cookie if you want your cookie to automatically persist when the client quits the browser.

package hall;

import javax.servlet.http.*;

public class LongLivedCookie extends Cookie {
  public static final int SECONDS_PER_YEAR = 60*60*24*365;

  public LongLivedCookie(String name, String value) {
    super(name, value);
    setMaxAge(SECONDS_PER_YEAR);
  }
}
