Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1006) BrowserCompatSpec: don't trim " around cookie value
Date Thu, 29 Dec 2016 22:43:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1006?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15786296#comment-15786296
] 

Julian Reschke commented on HTTPCLIENT-1006:
--------------------------------------------

Specs (in IETF land) are the way they are based on who shows up to do volunteer work to write
or revise them. Not unlike open source projects.

The current cookie spec aims to describe how cookies work in practice. Consistenvy with previous
versions (AFAIR) was a nice-to-have, not a requirement.

>             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: HttpClient (classic)
>    Affects Versions: 4.0.2

> 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.
