Subject Re: cookie issue with Tomcat 7 - does not accept the character "é"
Date Mon, 03 Feb 2014 23:36:04 GMT
Cookie handling is fundamentally a complete mess. Specifications exist
but are not fully implemented, are not consistent with related
specifications, etc.

Having tried to sort this out the last time around and having read
Jeremy's great work on documenting where we stand at the present moment,
it often feels like it wouldn't be too hard to make a case that just
about any cookie name or value that isn't an token (as per RFC2616) is
either valid or invalid depending on which specification(s) you choose
to read.

I'd strongly encourage anyone thinking about commenting further on this
thread to take the time to read the wiki page [1] where the Tomcat
committers (and Jeremy in particular) are currently trying to figure out
exactly how Tomcat should handle cookies in the future.
