      • parseCookieHeader

        void parseCookieHeader​(MimeHeaders headers,
                               ServerCookies serverCookies)
        Parse the provided headers into server cookie objects.
        Parameters:
        headers - The HTTP headers to parse
        serverCookies - The server cookies object to populate with the results of the parsing
      • generateHeader

        @Deprecated
        String generateHeader​(Cookie cookie)
        Deprecated.
        This method has been replaced with generateHeader(Cookie, HttpServletRequest) and will be removed from Tomcat 10 onwards.
        Generate the Set-Cookie HTTP header value for the given Cookie.
        Parameters:
        cookie - The cookie for which the header will be generated
        Returns:
        The header value in a form that can be added directly to the response
      • generateHeader

        default String generateHeader​(Cookie cookie,
                                      HttpServletRequest request)
        Generate the Set-Cookie HTTP header value for the given Cookie. This method receives as parameter the servlet request so that it can make decisions based on request properties. One such use-case is decide if the SameSite attribute should be added to the cookie based on the User-Agent or other request header because there are browser versions incompatible with the SameSite attribute. This is described by the Chromium project.

        The default implementation calls the deprecated generateHeader(Cookie) method. Implementors should not rely on this default method as it is present only for transitional compatibility and will be removed in Tomcat 10 at the same time as the generateHeader(Cookie) method.

        Parameters:
        request - The servlet request
        cookie - The cookie for which the header will be generated
        Returns:
        The header value in a form that can be added directly to the response
      • getCharset

        Charset getCharset()
        Obtain the character set that will be used when converting between bytes and characters when parsing and/or generating HTTP headers for cookies.
        Returns:
        The character set used for byte<->character conversions
