Description
The HttpOnly attribute for cookies is not part of RFC 2965 but is widely used because it provides a extra level of security.
When a cookie is flagged 'HttpOnly' it means that cookie should not be accessible through scripting but only sent as part of a HTTP request.

JDK7 changeset:

This RFE is concerned with adding API support to java.net.HttpCookie to support setting/getting the HttpOnly attribute.
