Description Sebastian 2014-12-05 08:14:19 UTC
Both CookieContainer and CookieParser can't parse cookie dates correctly.

Example cookie:
XYZ=ABC; expires=Sat, 03 Dec 2016 12:46:30 GMT; path=/; Domain=.example.de

RFC 6265 shows how to parse cookies. -> http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265#section-5.1.1

Maybe just implementing it at one place and not in CookieContainer and CookieParser would be sensible too.

Comment 1 Marek Safar 2015-01-14 12:19:52 UTC
Mono matches .net implementation which is not fully RFC 6265 compatible
Comment 2 Sebastian 2015-01-17 14:41:49 UTC
Nice try, but no cookie.
I do not know about the compatibility of .net with RFC 6265. In any case the example cookie given in my bug report just parses fine in Microsoft .net (4.0.30319.18444).
Comment 3 Marek Safar 2015-01-20 11:27:28 UTC
Mono master has new cookie implementation. I used following to test it and it works now

var cc = new CookieContainer ();
cc.SetCookies (new Uri ("http://www.example.de"), "XYZ =ABC; expires=Sat, 03 Dec 2016 12:46:30 GMT; path=/; Domain=.example.de");
