Subject [jira] [Resolved] (HTTPCLIENT-1267) There seems to be no way to get HttpClient to include cookies from a custom store
Date Tue, 04 Dec 2012 13:22:58 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1267?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Oleg Kalnichevski resolved HTTPCLIENT-1267.
-------------------------------------------

    Resolution: Invalid

> We do not care at all what kind of cookie it is; 

But you should, because cookie representations differ.

> If you have a way of saving the cookie in its original form and reconstituting a Cookie
object from it that can be retransmitted to the server, that would be infinitely preferable
to needing to figure out what kind of cookie it is etc. That was never the goal here.

Java serialization is supported out of the box. We could support another serialization mechanisms
as long as they do not require additional dependencies.

>             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient

>    Affects Versions: 4.2.2

> In the port of ManifoldCF from commons-httpclient to httpcomponents, we discovered a
problem or maybe a design flaw with how cookies are handled.
> What we're trying to do is to follow a certain series of html pages, and record the cookies
after that is done, and use exactly those cookies for a subsequent series of pages.  So I
have code that looks something like this:
> {code}
> DefaultHttpClient httpClient = new DefaultHttpClient();
> ...
> CookieStore cs = new BasicCookieStore();
> cs.addCookie(...);  // for each saved cookie
> httpClient.setCookieStore(cs);
> HttpGet httpget = new HttpGet(...);
> HttpResponse response = httpClient.execute(httpget);
> Cookie[] cookiesToSave = httpClient.getCookieStore().getCookies();
> [save the cookies aside]
> {code}
> What happens when I do this against a page that sets a cookie, is I get a perfectly reasonable
cookie, and save it.  For the next page, the code to add the cookie to the custom store then
seems to work fine as well.  But when I watch what is transmitted for the request (via header
logging) I see no Cookie header being sent, and indeed the cookie seems to be lost.
> Similar logic was done with HttpState in commons-httpclient, and worked perfectly there
against the same website.
> I have not yet tried the HttpContext approach for implementing this - I may try that
while awaiting an answer to this ticket, but the above seems like it ought to work, according
to the documentation.
