Question Regarding Cookies and Multiple JCEF Instances

Postby joxrox » Tue Sep 04, 2018 1:51 pm

Hello,

I am trying to create a program that uses multiple JCEF instances, each with their own unique cookie storage, to automate tasks on sites. So far, I have modified and built JCEF on so that the browsers run headlessly, but now I need each instance to have it's own cookie storage. Is this possible with the current builds of JCEF or will I need to make more modifications to the source code? If it is possible, can anyone give me a snippet of code that demonstrates how to do this?

Best regards,
Joe

In CEF to implement unique cookie managers you have to provide a unique CefRequestContext when creating browser and implement CefRequestHandler::GetCookieManager.

Thanks for your reply. I saw that in another forum post but I am having trouble understanding how to do this in Java since I am using JCEF. Do you think that I need to make changes to source code or can it be done in Java?

You need something like this
Code: Select all
class MyReqContextHandler implements CefRequestContextHandler {
CefCookieManager cookieManager = null;
...
MyReqContextHandler() {
....
cookieManager = CefCookieManager.createManager(cookiePath, false);
....
}

public CefCookieManager getCookieManager() {
        return cookieManager;
}


}

MyReqContextHandler contextHandler = new MyReqContextHandler();
CefRequestContext requestContext = CefRequestContext.createContext(contextHandler);
CefBrowser browser_ = client_.createBrowser(url, useOSR, isTransparent,requestContext);

this no longer applies for newer versions of CEF. CefCookieManager.createManager was removed.
