It was a quite late , but it might help someone

you can get the cookie value by this

public String getCookie(String siteName,String CookieName){     
    String CookieValue = null;

    CookieManager cookieManager = CookieManager.getInstance();
    String cookies = cookieManager.getCookie(siteName);   
    if(cookies != null){
        String[] temp=cookies.split(";");
        for (String ar1 : temp ){
                String[] temp1=ar1.split("=");
                CookieValue = temp1[1];
     return CookieValue;    


Point to notice:

If you are loading URL like http://sitedomain.com (without www), the siteName with www will not work with this method.
