Subject [jira] Created: (AXIS2-839) Session cookie implementation in SimpleHttpServer is error prone
Date Fri, 23 Jun 2006 12:00:29 GMT
Session cookie implementation in SimpleHttpServer is error prone
----------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: AXIS2-839
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AXIS2-839
     Project: Apache Axis 2.0 (Axis2)
        Type: Improvement

  Components: transports  
    Versions: 1.0    
    Reporter: Oleg Kalnichevski


(1) Presently both SimpleHttpServer and AbstractHTTPSender are unable to differentiate session
cookies from other cookies. The first cookie found the request / response is assumed to contain
the session identifier. For instance, these perfectly valid HTTP requests will cause the session
manager to pick a wrong session context

POST /whatever HTTP/1.1
Cookie: somecookie=somevalue
Cookie: urn:uuid:xxxxx

POST /whatever HTTP/1.1
Cookie: somecookie=somevalue, urn:uuid:xxxxx

The patch attempts to rectify the situation by giving the session cookie a distinguishable
name 

POST /whatever HTTP/1.1
Cookie: somecookie=somevalue
Cookie: axis_session=urn:uuid:xxxxx

POST /whatever HTTP/1.1
Cookie: somecookie=somevalue, axis_session=urn:uuid:xxxxx

(2) The patch also fixes the incorrect handling of Set-Cookie2 headers in the AbstractHTTPSender


Please note the patch may break badly written clients dependent on the existing session cookie
implementation.

Oleg
