>          Issue Type: Bug

>            Reporter: Ole SH

> Using CookieSpec Standard if a response to a http request to http://.../abc contains
a cookie for the path /def this cookie is rejected by httpclient. This is the correct behavior
in case of [RFC 2109|https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2109.txt] (cf. HTTPCLIENT-1043). But [RFC
6265|https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265] (as far as I know) does not state that a cookie
path must be a prefix of the request uri path. In 8.6 it is even mentioned as a "security
problem" that 'an HTTP response to a request for http://example.com/foo/bar can set a cookie
with a Path attribute of "/qux"'.
> I know that I can workaround my problem by using a custom cookie policy. I just wondered
if this behavior of httpclient is correct with respect to RFC 6265.
