> The format of multi-cookie in HTTP request head.
> ------------------------------------------------
>          Key: AXIS-2064
>          URL:
>      Project: Apache Axis
>         Type: Improvement
>   Components: Basic Architecture
>     Versions: 1.2.1
>  Environment: Any platform
>     Reporter: Gerry Gao

> In Axis 1.2.1, the HTTPSender and CommonsHTTPSender are sending multiple cookies for
the default format (multiple cookie headers):
>     Cookie: a=a1
>     Cookie: b=b2
>     Cookie: c=c3
> or
>     Cookie2: a=a1
>     Cookie2: b=b2
>     Cookie2: c=c3
> According to RFC2965, the multiple cookies should be baked with format (single cookie
>     Cookie: a=a1;b=b2;c=c3
> But in fact, most HTTP server supports the multiple cookie headers format. 
> The CommonsHTTPSender employs commons-httpclient which already supports switch between
the formats with a parameter like:
>     DefaultHttpParams.getDefaultParams().setBooleanParameter(
>        HttpMethodParams.SINGLE_COOKIE_HEADER,
>        true);
> (Reference:
> But the HTTPSender doesn't support this kind of switch.
> The suggestion is that Axis can add the feature of customizing the cookies' format and
provide a parameter for wsdl2java or just provide a public method in Stub to let the user
designate whihc cookie format should be used. Then make HTTPSender and CommonsHTTPSender (commons-httpclient)
be aware of this parameter.
