Subject RE: Is the Apache ISAPI Redirector Chopping Off Cookie Data?
Date Wed, 04 Aug 2010 14:31:06 GMT
Thank you for your time on this. It is just as I suspected from the one message I found, which
I suspect may have been from you. 

I have a follow-up question on this; making this switch in the cookie format will have a broad
impact on our web apps that use the GetAccess product to generate this cookie format as it
is now. In the note I referenced, it stated that "The value needs to be quoted for this to
work. Tomcat will do this automatically if necessary." That said, if we change to the v1 cookie
format, will Tomcat strip the quotes when it is passed to the servlet making the 'request.getCookies()'

Some of our apps use GetAccess but are not using Tomcat, they are ASP.NET pages. Does anyone
know if IIS does this stripping as well?

That cookie is not spec complaint. You can't use the '=' in a v0 cookie value. You need to
switch to v1 cookies and quote the value.
