#435 Parsing of cookies by findCookies in com.meterware.httpunit


When cookieJar parses the cookies, it looks for = sign and does not separate the cookies as per ;.
In case when cookies received are:
Set-Cookie: sessionId=123456; path=/; HttpOnly
path will be parsed to be /,HttpOnly. This creates a problem for further cookies as it will try to match the source path start to be cookie path and it has already been set wrong. acceptCookie function in CookieJar calls getPathAtrributeStatus to check for paths.

    Thank you for your bug report

    Bugreport 2076028 has addressed this and this has IMHO been fixed in the subversion repository already. The 1.7.2 release is pending.
    Please supply a test case patch as per the FAQ if you feel this diagnosis does not fit your description of your problem.

    Keep up the good work!

    Dear httpunit user!

    Thank you for your bug report. We appreciate the time and effort you are putting into this.

    Please supply a testcase with the expected result for the bug report that you are asking a solution for and we'll look into implementing it. For a start you might want to get the trunk version from the subversion repository (see https://sourceforge.net/svn/?group_id=6550\)
    and have a look at the source code of some of the more than 700 JUnit based testcase in there.

    If you do not use or have subversion tool you can still directly browse our test cases via:
    Looking into one or more of the Junit Java source files
    should give you a clue on what a proper testcase for httpunit looks like, often you will probably only have to "clone" an existing testcase and modify it slightly to your needs.

    When you are ready you might want to attach the testcase (and if you already have started implementing a solution for it it also the actual code) to the patch section of the sourceforge.net tracker for patches of the httpunit project at

    The main communication about further details of the development is via the httpunit developer mailinglist. You are most welcome to sign up via

    The httpunit developer team
