---------------------------------------

             Summary: There seems to be no way to get HttpClient to include cookies from a
custom store
                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1267
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1267
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: HttpCookie
    Affects Versions: 4.2.2
            Reporter: Karl Wright


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.
