Subject [jira] Created: (WAGON-269) Allow configuration of httpclient to change cookie policy, other options

Allow configuration of httpclient to change cookie policy, other options
------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: WAGON-269
                 URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/WAGON-269
             Project: Maven Wagon
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: wagon-http
    Affects Versions: 1.0-beta-5
            Reporter: John Casey


In some cases, using non-lightweight http wagon can result in WARNING messages about cookies
with an incorrect path. This can be a particular problem where internal rewrite modules change
the location of a servlet that expects to be at a different path than the one the browser
used to access it.

httpclient configuration options need to be exposed for configuration from the settings.xml
in order to allow users to fix this. Simply ignoring cookies is probably not a great option,
since some sites do rely on session cookies to maintain authentication, etc. Additionally,
there is a wealth of configuration available for httpclient, and exposing a method for configuring
this wagon comprehensively should help us head off future concerns about one of the other
config options.
