Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1451) HttpClient does not store response cookies on a 401
Date Fri, 24 Jan 2014 16:55:38 GMT

Richard Sand commented on HTTPCLIENT-1451:
------------------------------------------

Hi Oleg-

I agree it's not typical, but there's nothing in 2617 that precludes other
headers, including cookies, being sent in the 401 response.

I do have the workaround, it just prevents me from using the AuthCache and
such. I'll be happy to test the behavior again in 5.0 alpha.

Thanks!

>             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: HttpAuth

>            Reporter: Richard Sand

> Using HttpClient 4.3.2 to call a Web Service which is secured with BASIC authentication.
The server responds to the initial request with a 401 response but also includes a cookie.
> The HttpClient does not place response cookies into the cookie store until after it has
completed the subsequent request with the Authorize header, but the server rejects the authentication
if the cookie is missing. 
> To work around this I had to disable the authentication capability in the HttpClientContext
and manually check for the 401 response code, and then send a followup request with a manually
set Authorize header.
> So in the use case where the HttpClient is automatically sending a followup request with
credentials in response to a 401, the client should place the cookies from the original response
into the cookie store immediately, rather than waiting for after the response to the credentials
(the 2nd response).
