The Nexus Session cookie name is currently JSESSIONID.
This is a default Java webapp default session cookie name.
When Nexus is running on a host where another java webapp is located, sometimes conflicts can occur with this cookie name where one webapp overwrites the cookie of the other.
To help avoid such conflicts, we should given the Nexus session cookie a non-default name. In case this presents unforeseen problems in some environments, make the cookie name configurable by a Nexus administrator.
NEXUS-6385 Nexus Cookies do not specify port, resulting in cookies from myhostname:8081 are sent to myhostname:8082
