Description dead_lnx 2008-02-16 23:05:45 UTC
Tomcat 6.0.16
If cookie includes character like '@' and ':', 
String after these character is ignored.

Ex. Cookie's value : test@examples.com
   request.getCookies()[0].getValue() // test
   ('@examples.com' is ignored!)

That is because those characters are illegal in version 0 cookies (as per the
spec). You need to use version 1 cookies.

The cookie handling in 6.0.16 had an overhaul as a result of a couple of minor
security issues.

There will probably be an option to auto-switch to v1 cookies for this use case
in 6.0.17 onwards.
