Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1546) Cookie values can end up being double quoted
Date Thu, 21 Aug 2014 21:34:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1546?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14105994#comment-14105994

Gregory Chanan commented on HTTPCLIENT-1546:
--------------------------------------------

Tried again today with the latest snapshot in the maven repo, same result.  I believe the
issue is that I'm using the BestMatchSpec, not the BrowserCompatSpec.  If you change the above
test to use the the BestMatchSpec, if fails for me.  Is that expected?

> I have a cookie like this:
> hadoop.auth="someValue"; Version=1; Expires=Fri, 01 Aug 2014 09:03:40 GMT; HttpOnly
> Because it has an "Expires" attribute, httpclient treats it as a netscape cookie.  But,
when it is sent back to the server, it's sent double-quoted:
> hadoop.auth=""someValue""; Version=1; Expires=Fri, 01 Aug 2014 09:03:40 GMT; HttpOnly
> which causes the server to see the hadoop.auth value as "".
> So, it seems like httpclient is being inconsistent in how it treats the version; it first
assumes version 0, but then treats it as version 1 and assumes it can add quotes.  Even though
the cookie is not a valid Version=1 Cookie, ideally httpclient would not double quote the
response.
> NOTE: I tested this on httpclient 4.2.5, but that's not a choice for "Affects Version"
