Hi
I want to get value of certain cookie I found something like this:
 
var request = facesContext.getExternalContext().getRequest();
request.getHeader("Cookie");
 
but it show all cookies tried to edit it to show only 1 but don't work.
 
I have simply cookie named "cookie_name" and I want to get value of this Cookie.
 
EDIT
 
cookie.get("cookie_name") returns javax.servlet.http.Cookie@2a542a54

Re: Get Value of certain Cookie
 Karol,
 
You're close: the global "cookie" variable is a HashMap containing all cookies. The cookie.get("cookie_name") call returns an object of the javax.servlet.http.Cookie class. The properties and methods of the class can be found here. You'll see on that link that the class has a getValue() method. So, to retrieve the cookie value you can use:
 
cookie.get("cookie_name").getValue();
