      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.7.0_05"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_05-b05)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 23.1-b03, mixed mode)
      Netbeans 7.1.2

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      When I request any website with HttpUrlConnection, which sends an "Set-Cookie" header, this header is not retuned with
      HttpUrlConnection.getHeaderFields(). This happens ony if I run the program as signed WebStart Application. When I start the program 'normal' all header fields are retuned as expected.

      It has worked with JDK 6.X.

      REGRESSION. Last worked in version 6u31

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Run the attached code as signed WebStart Application under Java 7.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Excecuted as normal Application:

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
          public static void main(String[] args) {
              try {
                  URL url = new URL("http://www.google.de"); //Any Http Server that sends a Set-Cookie Header
                  HttpURLConnection openConnection = (HttpURLConnection)url.openConnection();

                  Map<String, List<String>> headerFields = openConnection.getHeaderFields();
                  Set<Entry<String, List<String>>> entrySet = headerFields.entrySet();
                  for (Entry<String, List<String>> e : entrySet) {
                      System.out.printf("%s %s\r\n", e.getKey(), e.getValue());
                  }
                  String headerField = openConnection.getHeaderField("Set-Cookie"); //With WebStart headerField is null
              } catch (Exception ex) {
                  System.out.println(ex.getMessage());
              }
          }
      ---------- END SOURCE ----------

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      When I set the default CookieHandler to null the Set-Cookie header is returned even in WebStart mode.

      CookieHandler.setDefault(null);
