Subject Set-Cookie: filtering on the path= verses URL path
Date Mon, 23 Aug 2004 20:54:44 GMT
Hi All,
We have a URL that works in IE and Netscape, but the cookie is not getting sent
from HTTPClient.
Here is the URL and the Set-Cookie
response header has this:
Set-Cookie: JSESSIONID=0000CQL00NOE2OHVJFC5I3I5YRQ:v0c153k7;Path=/insight
The cookie path fails this logic in CookieSpecBase.java
     * Performs a path-match slightly smarter than a straight-forward startsWith
     * check.
     * @param path The path to check.
     * @param topmostPath The path to check against.
     * @return true if the paths match
    private static boolean pathMatch(
        final String path, final String topmostPath) {
        boolean match = path.startsWith (topmostPath);     // Our example passes this
        // if there is a match and these values are not exactly the same we have
        // to make sure we're not matcing "/foobar" and "/foo"
        if (match && path.length() != topmostPath.length()) {
            if (!topmostPath.endsWith(PATH_DELIM)) {
                match = (path.charAt(topmostPath.length()) == PATH_DELIM_CHAR);  // Our example
fails this, we
want /foobar to match /foo
        return match;
Is there a way to bypass this pathMatch() or specify another one?
