Subject RE: HttpClient Header Problem
Date Thu, 23 Oct 2003 12:12:38 GMT
Hi José,

Simply use HttpState#addCookie method to add a cookie to the HTTP session.
Currently HttpClient overwrites manually set 'Cookie' headers. You are not
the first one to have fallen into this trap. Quite a few people complained
about what they see as disappearance of manually set 'Cookie' headers. I
am planning to provide a patch against CVS HEAD soon. The fix, however, is
not likely to make it into our stable 2.0 branch, so I strongly encourage
to use HttpState class to handle cookies.
