Cookies

Browser cookies were briefly mentioned in Step 8, “ColdFusion Application Framework.” Cookies are not a feature of ColdFusion; rather, they are a feature of HTTP and the World Wide Web in general.

A cookie is simply a small text file placed on the user’s computer by the web server. The information stored in that cookie is then available to the web server the next time the user returns to the web site. Consequently, this makes cookies an ideal place to store information, such as a user’s name, color and content preferences, and the date of his last visit.
