I know that I can get cookies by going through the context to get the original HttpServletRequest and then getting cookies from that, but I'm wondering, is there a more Seam-style way of doing that? I just need to get a value out of a cookie.
Actually, this question doesn't make sense. Direct access to cookies doesn't make much sense within Seam. It's an HTTP thing. I use the external context and getCookieMap.
