Custom HTTP header


#1

I want a simple http header like the one below.

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: Mongrel 1.1.5
Set-Cookie: JSESSIONID=<session_key>; Path=/
Content-Type: text/html;charset=UTF-8
Content-Length: 138
Date: Fri, 15 May 2009 01:48:42 GMT
Connection: close

I’m using rails 2.2.2. I can’t override the set-cookie part and I also
want to remove the ETag and X-Runtime parts. I was able to remove the
Status and Cache-Control parts by using the delete method.

I tried using

cookies[‘JSESSIONID’] = <sessions_key>

but the my_session cookie is still there.

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Connection: close
Date: Tue, 19 May 2009 02:45:20 GMT
Set-Cookie: _my_session=<session_key>; path=/; HttpOnly
ETag: “100098631aaee632fb77079e8a6c4932”
X-Runtime: 260ms
Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: 137
Server: Mongrel 1.1.5

I got the headers above from wireshark. The first header is generated
by connecting to a java server.

thanks!
