Hi all,

I was hoping someone would be able to help with an issue I'm having setting up 
an embedded NettyJaxrsServer (for the purpose of testing).

Basically, I'm trying to write integration tests for a fairly simple REST 
service implemented using RESTeasy 2.3.5.  Testing using JUnit and REST-assured.

Spawning up my service on JBoss and testing against the URL works fine, however 
I'd like to use an embedded server so the tests can be automated into the CI 

I initially started trying to use a TJWSEmbeddedJaxrsServer, however I 
encountered insurmountable (for me) difficulties related to security.  My REST 
service is simple, however, the request sends a security token inside a cookie, 
which my server authorises against another service over https.  There is a 
truststore involved aswell, and basically I couldn't get past SSL related code 
explosions... probably related to the following snippet from the RESTEasy user 

"The server can either host non-encrypted or SSL based resources, but not both."

So, I tried my hand at using the NettyJaxrsServer.  I was expecting more of the 
same, but lo and behold, no SSL issues.  Sadly, life is not that kind, and my 
next stumbling block (and finally getting to the point of this email) is that 
the cookie in the request is not getting injected into my GET method:

public Response getData(@CookieParam(COOKIE_PARAMETER_NAME) String 
securityToken) { ... }

Example REST-assured request:


This works fine using the TJWSEmbeddedJaxrsServer, and when hosted on JBoss, 
however when using the NettyJaxrsServer, securityToken is null (it is 
definitely present in the request).

Does the NettyJaxrsServer not understand @CookieParam, or am I doing something 
wrong or not doing something I should?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
