Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 47429] New: Cookie value with equal sign getting truncated
Date Thu, 25 Jun 2009 16:58:53 GMT

           Summary: Cookie value with equal sign getting truncated
           Product: Tomcat 6
           Version: 6.0.18
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows Vista
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Servlet & JSP API

It seems Tomcat has implemented the RFC standards in the latest version which
doesn't allow "=" sign in the cookie value. But in our organization, we
authenticate the user by an encrypted cookie. Its a different team which
creates the cookie and it is being consumed by many applications. This cookie
has the "=" sign in the value. We were fine until we used Tomcat 5.5.20. But
when we want to upgrade to 6.0.18, we are facing issue and the funcationallity
is completly broken. Is there any solution available.

Note: we cannot go ahead and ask to change the cookie value delimited by
another notation now,as all the applications will get impacted.
