Description Mark De Vries 2008-11-10 07:24:16 UTC

I have the following Problem:

I set a Cookie with a value such as (without the quotes):
This is the cookies value only.

Setting and reading of this cookie works fine on Tomcat 5.5.25 and 6.0.18.

If i use Tomcat 5.5.26 or 5.5.27 the Cookies value is cut off after the first "=" character, so all my application receives is (without the quotes)

What confuses me is: if it only worked due to a Bug in 5.5.25 then why would it work in 6.0.18 again which afaik has the same Bugs fixed which were fixed in the version Jump from 5.5.25 to 5.5.26 .

Is this a Bug or am i trying to do something which isn't allowed due to security constraints.

Best Regards

Since 6.0.24 there is a configuration option, that allows '=' in the cookie
value. See
