[jersey-dev] question about jax-rs client and session cookies

Hello, I am having trouble determining why I can't get a session cookie from my test server.

I am performing the request like this:

        Invocation.Builder invocationBuilder = loginAction.request();
        Response response =;

        session = response.getCookies().get(SERVICE_SESSION_COOKIE_NAME);

This works as expected on a production (https) machine.

On my test (localhost, non-https), however, there is no cookie. But I can check with wget or a browser and see that a cookie is being sent to clients:

wget --keep-session-cookies --save-cookies /tmp/cookies.txt -S http://localhost:8080/hiwish/ --2020-05-07 16:12:43-- http://localhost:8080/app/ Resolving localhost (localhost)...
