Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1006) BrowserCompatSpec: don't trim " around cookie value
Date Thu, 29 Dec 2016 14:47:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1006?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15785442#comment-15785442

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-1006:

There is no point moving anywhere given that your entire line of reasoning is based on a completely
wrong premise. 

As far as RFC 6265 goes I would like to understand whether the new spec intended to provide
some degree of backward compatibility with previous specs and whether or not there is a reference
to a generic mechanism for escaping special characters in header elements. For that I need
to revisit the entire chain of RFCs which is likely to take a few days. Otherwise the discussion
is pointless because I personally see no evidence in the spec supporting this statement as

bq. So a cookie whose value came in DQs also has to be sent back in DQs. 

The spec does not state that. It is just your interpretation.

>             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: HttpClient (classic)
>    Affects Versions: 4.0.2
>            Reporter: Marc Guillemot
> If the server sends a cookie header like:
> Set-Cookie: first="hello world"
> then HttpClient parses it as cookie with value >hello world<, wrongly removing
the leading and trailing quotes. The incorrect quote removal occurs in BasicHeaderValueParser.
