Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1264) Need CookiePolicy.BROWSER_COMPATIBILITY_MEDIUM_SECURITY policy

Hi Oleg,

First of all, for ManifoldCF, we have a workaround so what you choose to do is immaterial
to us.  However, I would point out that you have pretty strong evidence at this point that
the BROWSER_COMPATIBILITY policy is not correct, at least for one OS, and in our case for
Windows (if that is not what Sebb tried) and for two different browsers that operate on each
OS.  I would agree with Sebb that keeping backwards compatibility would be a good idea, so
creating a new cookie policy (as this ticket proposes) would be the correct way to do this,
in my opinion.  It sounds to me like what is unknown at this point is the following:

- the scope of what browsers/settings/OS's the policy would apply to (more than zero, though,
clearly)
- what it is to be called

As time permits I would imagine those questions could be further answered; while I am not
in a position to do extensive work right now I may have the opportunity within a week or two,
and broaden the research to Linux versions of Firefox, at least.  Does this change your thinking
at all?

Karl

> The ManifoldCF project is currently moving to HttpComponents 4.2.2 from a heavily patched
commons-httpclient 3.1 version.  One of the patches seems to have no particular equivalent
yet in HttpComponents.  Please see CONNECTORS-119 for details about what the patch did, and
research into the current HttpComponents code base.
> I am happy to create a specific patch if that is desired; please let me know.
