I seem to have discovered a bug in the Nokia 7650 browser. I would just like some confirmation from someone else who has experienced the same problem or can reproduce it.
The problem is this. Suppose I send a cookie to the browser like this:
On the next request the browser sends the following header back to the application server:
When in fact it should send (notice the '$' signs):
Since 'Path', 'Domain' and 'Version' are reserved words and no cookies can be set with that name (according to RFC 2109 - http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2109.txt). What the browser is in fact doing is sending three cookies named 'mycookie', 'Path' and 'Domain'. The problem with this is that many application servers (in my particular case Jakarta Tomcat) will refuse this request.
Has anyone else experienced this and/or can comment on it? I don't know how to check thw SW version of the phone but its User-Agent string is:
