Thanks.  The above gives me hope that there are TWO possible resolutions!

One additional question, if you don't mind:  I forgot to mention that earlier, there was another
problem, where the server would send a "Set-Cookie:" to the applet, and then the applet appeared
to be "accepting" the cookie string from the "Set-Cookie:", but with an additional string,
"$Version=0;" pre-pended to the cookie string.

In other words, the server would send:

Set-Cookie: JSESSIONID=xxxxxxxxxxxx

and I would see in the Java Console log:

HttpMethodBase: accepted cookie: $Version=0; JSESSIONID=xxxxxxx

After a lot of digging and testing, I was able to eliminate the "$Version=0" by setting:


in the Java Control panel startup parameters.

The reason I'm mentioning this is that you mentioned RFC 2109 above.  Since I have "-Dapache.commons.httpclient.cookiespec=COMPATIBILITY"
already, will that affect anything that you said above, e.g., will the combined cookie strings
still have the semi-colon in between them if I can get that vendor to set "single-cookie"
to true?
