Subject: No way to delete cookies outside the current domain
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.2k
It looks like the delete_cookie() method in WWW::Selenium cannot handle deleting cookies with domains other than the current base domain being tested. I'm testing an application which can link with Facebook through their API, and in doing so Facebook creates a cookie named 'xs' with 'path=/' and 'domain=.facebook.com' but if I call $sel->delete_cookie("xs", "/") the cookie in question does not get deleted. According to the docs: $sel->delete_cookie($name, $path) Delete a named cookie with specified path. $name is the name of the cookie to be deleted $path is the path property of the cookie to be deleted Am I out of luck on this? It appears that Selenium Core has a deleteCookie function: deleteCookie(name, optionsString) Arguments: * name - the name of the cookie to be deleted * optionsString - options for the cookie. Currently supported options include 'path', 'domain' and 'recurse.' The optionsString's format is "path=/path/, domain=.foo.com, recurse=true". The order of options are irrelevant. Note that specifying a domain that isn't a subset of the current domain will usually fail. I guess, given the note about domains, maybe the issue lies elsewhere anyway. My environment: Perl v5.8.8 on MacOS X 10.5.

WWW::Selenium just passes the commands through to the selenium core, so I suspect the problem if any lies with selenium core. Perhaps you could also use the get_eval() method to run javascript to do what you need. Cheers, Luke On Tue, Aug 25, 2009 at 1:32 PM, Owen B.

This is out of the scope of Test::WWW::Selenium. The problem is a limitation of Selenium-RC
