Subject RE: Why are cookies deleted?
Date Mon, 06 Oct 2003 09:59:17 GMT
Ernst,

Cookies are not deleted by HttpClient unless they are expired. I am pretty sure about it

In your particular case there's a bug in the following piece of code 

   public AddReleaseTask() {
      HttpState httpState = new HttpState();
      httpState.setCookiePolicy(CookiePolicy.COMPATIBILITY);

      _httpClient = new HttpClient();
      _httpClient.setConnectionTimeout(7000); // 7 seconds
      _httpClient.setTimeout(5000);           // 5 seconds
      _httpClient.setState(httpState);
   }

There's a new instance of HttpState created every time the method is executed. As a result
the old one gets garbage collected along with all the cookies it contains. Just keep the original
HttpState instance to stop your cookies from disappearing

HTH

Oleg

Subject: Why are cookies deleted?


Hi,

Why are cookies deleted from the state registered with my HttpClient object?

I do a request (GetMethod) that returns 2 cookies. Then I do another request 
(using another GetMethod) and with that I lose both cookies. Should I 
recycle the original method or should I release the connection or should I 
do something else?

I'm pretty sure the site does not delete the cookies self, although I'm not 
100% sure. How can I determine this?
