How can I set, get and delete cookie variables?

How can I set, get and delete cookie variables? How will cookies be implemented in a Web application and what is the purpose of using them?
You use cookies to store information about or for the user that you will need at some time to service the user better. In Domino applications you often have the option of having users authenticate, and if that's an option, you don't necessarily need cookies, because you can store information about a user's preferences on the server. If authentication is not an option, but you need to store, for instance, the user's preferred portal contents, you would use a cookie.

Read about what cookies are and how they are used on CookieCentral.
