1 Introduction

Every time the client sends a request to the server and a cookie is defined for the requested path, the cookie is also sent to the server with the current request. The function getCookie() returns the value of such a cookie. You need to specify the name of the desired cookie as a function attribute. In case a cookie with the specified name has not been received, the function returns an empty string. See ISML Tag - ISCOOKIEabout information on how to create a cookie on the client side.
