The library sets its own SAPCookieManager as the default cookie handler. Clients should be aware of this if a custom cookie handler uses the same mechanism. If a default CookieHandler is already set, the library copies every cookie from it to SAPCookieManager inside of the HttpConversationManager constructor.
SAPCookieManager is a singleton class that uses the android.webkit.CookieManager to handle and persist cookies from either a WebView or HttpURLConnection; this allows the same cookie manager to be used by WebView and native HTTP request processing.
if (CookieSyncManager.getInstance() == null) CookieSyncManager.createInstance(context);
The underlying cookie store acts as a proxy between the client and the WebKit CookieManager. It is not a full standalone implementation; its capabilities are limited by the WebKit cookie store.
The class' default CookiePolicy is ACCEPT_ALL, which you can change using SAPCookieManager.setPolicy(CookiePolicy).
