Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-1006) BrowserCompatSpec: don't trim " around cookie value
Date Mon, 04 Oct 2010 12:51:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1006?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12917580#action_12917580

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-1006:

> What would be the difference between BrowserCompatSpec and "IE/Firefox cookie spec"?

BrowserCompatSpec was never meant to emulate a particular browser or browser version. It is
basically a collection of workarounds for crazy stuff common to most of so called popular
browser. If that is not enough in your case, you may want to consider creating cookie specs
that emulate the exact behavior of a specific browser or browser version (IE55, IE60, FF3
and so on)

> I don't understand the ambiguity you mention

I do not think I can help here, then

> Where do the expectations in org.apache.http.impl.cookie.TestBrowserCompatSpec come from?

Accumulated over years based on users' feedback and bug reports

> Btw: what have you done to the HttpClient jar that forbid Eclipse to set breakpoints?

Huh? Torture and intimidation, I guess.

>             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: HttpCookie
>    Affects Versions: 4.0.2
>            Reporter: Marc Guillemot
> If the server sends a cookie header like:
> Set-Cookie: first="hello world"
> then HttpClient parses it as cookie with value >hello world<, wrongly removing
the leading and trailing quotes. The incorrect quote removal occurs in BasicHeaderValueParser.
