>          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

> (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.
