The "secureCookie" attribute was added to 3.3.2 only to allow backwards
compatibility with 3.3.1.  Like Tomcat 4 and higher, the default is 'true'.
It's a pretty small patch:

if you just want to add the feature to 3.3.1.  Like Yoav said, TC 4 and
higher always uses secure cookies.

Subject: RE: Question on Tomcat 4

Tomcat 4 and later are so different from 3.x.  I suggest you do the
migration, if only for the speed and feature increases.  I don't think
there's an "attribute" called "secureCookie" in tomcat4, as there is no
"un-secure" mode.  Perhaps a tomcat 3 guru like Senor Barker can fill in
more information...
