Description

Aaron from UW installed a Metacat instance on tomcat7 (Ubuntu 12). But a user can't log in when a Morpho connected it.

It turned out that the header sending back from tomcat 7 is:" JSESSIONID=whatever; Path=/metacat; HttpOnly" and the Morpho can't understand "HttpOnly".

We edit the context.xml in the tomcat conf directory: <Context useHttpOnly="false">

Then the log-in worked. But the morpho always freeze. If morpho connects to a metacat running under tomcat6, it is fine.

<Context useHttpOnly="false">
