Hi!
i change the Request Method to "HEAD" and try to write the Header to stdout, but i get an IOException "Stream closed".
Anyone knows why?
URL url = new URL("http://blabla.com");
HttpURLConnection conn;
try
{
conn = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
//disconnect to change Request Method
conn.disconnect();
conn.setRequestMethod("HEAD");
//and connect again
conn.connect();
BufferedReader input = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(conn.getInputStream()));
while((line = input.readLine()) != null)
{
System.out.println(line);
}
input.close();
} catch (IOException ioe) {
System.out.println("IOException " + ioe.getMessage());
}
}

I would guess the problem is that you have disconnected ... You may not be allowed to reconnect after a disconnect ... the following quote is from the HttpUrlConnection javadoc for the disconnect method ...

Indicates that other requests to the server are unlikely in the near future. Calling disconnect() should not imply that this HttpURLConnection instance can be reused for other requests.
