public static List<HttpCookie> parse (String header)

Constructs cookies from set-cookie or set-cookie2 header string. RFC 2965 section 3.2.2 set-cookie2 syntax indicates that one header line may contain more than one cookie definitions, so this is a static utility method instead of another constructor.

header     a String specifying the set-cookie header. The header should start with "set-cookie", or "set-cookie2" token; or it should have no leading token at all.

Returns:  a List of cookie parsed from header line string

IllegalArgumentException     if header string violates the cookie specification's syntax or the cookie name contains illegal characters.
NullPointerException     if the header string is null
