Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 46403] New: Persistent cookies written by 6.0.18 do not work in Internet Explorer or Safari
Date Mon, 15 Dec 2008 21:46:49 GMT
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=46403

           Summary: Persistent cookies written by 6.0.18 do not work in
                    Internet Explorer or Safari
           Product: Tomcat 6
           Version: 6.0.18
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://cephas.net/blog/2008/11/18/tomcat-6018-version-1-
                    cookies-acegi-remember-me-and-ie/
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Catalina
        AssignedTo: dev@tomcat.apache.org
        ReportedBy: matt@editme.com


This blog post shows up in Google when searching for this problem, and is a
better explanation that I can give here:

http://cephas.net/blog/2008/11/18/tomcat-6018-version-1-cookies-acegi-remember-me-and-ie/

To summarize, in 6.0.18, the way Tomcat writes persistent cookie headers was
changed from:

Set-Cookie:
yankeessuck=YWFyb246MTIyODI0ODEwMjk5NjoyOGM5ODc4YzExOGZiOGZjZTBkZDE0ZTA1ZWRhZTM3Nw==;
Expires=Thu, 19-Nov-2009 02:29:29 GMT;

to:

Set-Cookie:
yankeessuck="YWFyb246MTIyODI0ODEwMjk5NjoyOGM5ODc4YzExOGZiOGZjZTBkZDE0ZTA1ZWRhZTM3Nw==";
Version=1; Max-Age=31536000;

The value was enclosed in quotes, a "Version=1" parameter was added, and the
Expires parameter was replaced with a Max-Age parameter.

Though cookies are written correctly to specification, Internet Explorer (6 and
7) and Safari do not support the Max-Age parameter. As a result, an application
writing persistent cookies in this version of Tomcat won't work for Internet
Explorer or Safari.
