Hi Guys,

I have configured my Spring application using xml (things were going that way...)

Using Chrome, I can see that my session cookie is not checked as secure. I already have the following code in my deployment descriptor (web.xml) file:





I was wondering if there is any Spring specific task I need to perform in order to achieve this?

Thanks,

G

In web.xml you have defined the session cookie http-only.
But you have not made it secure.
Have you yet learnt about the <secure> attribute?

Thanks for the reply Tapas.

I have been searching for more information on '<secure>' but have not found any. Can you help me narrow my search please? Is it a Spring specific thing?
