Sorry Tom, but the application object has nothing to do with cookies. 
It is a 'global' session, for lack of a better term, and doesn't need to
concern itself with cookies or other means of identifying specific 
users, because nothing in the application object is specific to users - 
it is data specific to the total application itself.

You may be thinking of sessions themselves - the 'session' object and 
the 'application' object are treated similarly from a programmatic 
standpoint but are pretty different underneath in terms of operation and 

Hope that helps.
