How do you configure HttpOnly cookies in tomcat

The httpOnly functionality can be enabled for all webapps in conf/context.xml:


<Context useHttpOnly="true">

</Context>

you can use below in your application web.xml file as:

<session-config>
  <cookie-config>
     <http-only>true</http-only>        
     <secure>true</secure>        
  </cookie-config>
</session-config>

HttpOnly: Specifies whether any session tracking cookies created by this web application will be marked as HttpOnly

Secure: Specifies whether any session tracking cookies created by this web application will be marked as secure even if the request that initiated the corresponding session is using plain HTTP instead of HTTPS
