For example:

if in the url the delimiter changes from ';' to ',' then you should set the following

appsession-option delimiterstart ,

and the end point is not '=' it is ';' then you should set the following

appsession-option delimiterstop ;

A better case is the BEA 'Cookie'.

JSESSIONID=GyvN6gTy7LKR2tyXDHvSzBhCfNH34YMG2f60xhVkXJNrrs5QvMjx!1267565914 So the appsession-option delimiterstop is '!'.

But maybe it can be handled with the length.

After this talk I think the usecase is solved with the current available options.

Ok, lets keep it in mind maybe someone else find a better usecase so that we can decide it better if we should add this options or not.
