To: Michael Becke <mbecke@gmail.com>

Thanks Mike, but I'm not entirely sure that what you are suggesting
works. Since we've built our own Cookie Management Layer, the best
solution for us at this point is to disable HttpClient's cookie
function completely. I'm attempting to do this by putting this in the
constructor for our HttpClientWrapper:


which is what I put together based on the documentation's suggestion of:

        CookiePolicy.registerCookieSpec(CookiePolicy.DEFAULT, <Some

Regarding your suggestion of :


I've grepped in the rc3 source for IgnoreCookieSpec to no avail, so
I'm assuming that

IgnoreCookieSpec.class ==

If this isn't the case, and IgnoreCookieSpec.class is different, do I
need to check out the source from subversion to get this object, or am
I just not finding it in rc3?

Thanks for your help,
