If this is true Tomcat will allow ‘=‘ characters when parsing unquoted cookie values. If false, cookie values containing ‘=‘ will be terminated when the ‘=‘ is encountered and the remainder of the cookie value will be dropped.
If not specified, the default value specification compliant value of false will be used.
If this is true Tomcat will always add an expires parameter to a SetCookie header even for cookies with version greater than zero. This is to work around a known IE6 and IE7 bug that causes IE to ignore the Max-Age parameter in a SetCookie header.
If org.apache.catalina.STRICT_SERVLET_COMPLIANCE is set to true, the default of this setting will be false, else the default value will be true.
If this is true then the / (forward slash) character will be treated as a separator. Note that this character is frequently used in cookie path attributes and some browsers will fail to process a cookie if the path attribute is quoted as is required by a strict adherence to the specifications. This is highly likely to break session tracking using cookies.
If org.apache.catalina.STRICT_SERVLET_COMPLIANCE is set to true, the default of this setting will be true, else the default value will be false.
