      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :


      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      REOPENING JDK-8080659
      Details regarding steps to reproduce and actual/expected result can be found in the closed issue JDK-8080659

      The bug was closed with the following reason:
      "The spec doesn't appear to commit to ordering these fields. 2015-05-11"

      I don't agree with this comment because the specification RFC2616 says that the order matters.

      From http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec4.html#sec4.2:
      "Multiple message-header fields with the same field-name MAY be present in a message if and only if the entire field-value for that header field is defined as a comma-separated list [i.e., #(values)]. It MUST be possible to combine the multiple header fields into one "field-name: field-value" pair, without changing the semantics of the message, by appending each subsequent field-value to the first, each separated by a comma. The order in which header fields with the same field-name are received is therefore significant to the interpretation of the combined field value, and thus a proxy MUST NOT change the order of these field values when a message is forwarded. "







      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
