Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1264) Need CookiePolicy.BROWSER_COMPATIBILITY_MEDIUM_SECURITY policy
Date Wed, 21 Nov 2012 20:36:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1264?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13502292#comment-13502292
] 

Sebb commented on HTTPCLIENT-1264:
----------------------------------

Just run some tests, and AFAICT Firefox, Chrome and Opera all retain cookies with a path that
does not match the originating host path (and then serve them to the relevant path).

As far as I am aware I have not specifically permitted this.
For default behaviour this is not ideal!

> 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.
