Lukas Smith's Blog:
One thumb up and two down (Zend_Http_Client)
June 16, 2008 @ 09:32:24

Coming back from some previous comments about the Zend_Http_Client in the Zend Framework, Lukas Smith admits that a certain feature has come in handy with their development, but another bug has come up that has gotten under his skin - a problem with the component's cookie handling.

We ran into a really hard to find bug in the cookie handling of Zend_Http_Client, which has been filed as a bug back in August 2007 against version 1.0.1 (today we are at 1.5.2). More over this is a bug that other similar packages have gotten over in 2004.

He had to use wireshark to finally track down the culprit - a call to urlencode on the contents of the cookie before sending it. He also includes some code to overcome a problem he had with UTF-16 in one of his feeds (a custom function that takes in and returns a string translated correctly).
