Class Cookie


public class Cookie extends Object

Cookie header parser based on RFC6265

The parsing of cookies using RFC6265 is more relaxed that the specification in the following ways:

  • Values 0x80 to 0xFF are permitted in cookie-octet to support the use of UTF-8 in cookie values as used by HTML 5.
  • For cookies without a value, the '=' is not required after the name as some browsers do not sent it.

Implementation note:
This class has been carefully tuned. Before committing any changes, ensure that the TesterCookiePerformance unit test continues to give results within 1% for the old and new parsers.
