Hi
i want to submit a simple form using threading.
URL cellUrl = new URL("http://192.168.123.41:8080/a/servlet/Form");
HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection) cellUrl.openConnection();
conn.setRequestMethod("POST");
conn.setDoOutput(true);
conn.setDoInput(true);
conn.setUseCaches(false);
conn.setRequestProperty ("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
DataOutputStream dos = new DataOutputStream (conn.getOutputStream ());
dos.writeBytes (strData);
dos.flush ();
dos.close ();
i am using this code but it is not working can any one explain working of "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" and what is problem with my code

conn.setRequestProperty ("Content Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
sets the ENCTYPE attribute of the form. ENCTYPE attribute sets the Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) encoding for the form.
<FORM ENCTYPE = sType... >
where sType = application/x-www-form-urlencoded
which is the default value.
Setting the content type is important because
some versions of Netscape's browser has a bug which does not give proper content type when doing POSTs.

Your code works fine for me. I added a few statement for debugging.

import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
public class CreateFile extends HttpServlet{

public void doGet(HttpServletRequest req,HttpServletResponse res) {
try {
res.setContentType("text/html");
PrintWriter out=res.getWriter();
out.println("<form method=post>");
out.println("<input type=text name=x>");
out.println("<input type=submit>");
out.println("</form>");
}
catch(IOException ex){System.out.println("Error "+ex);}
}
public void doPost(HttpServletRequest req,HttpServletResponse res) {

try{
System.out.println("Parameter is"+req.getParameter("x"));
System.out.println("Creating File");
FileOutputStream file=new FileOutputStream("String.txt");
DataOutputStream dos=new DataOutputStream(file);
dos.writeBytes(req.getParameter("x"));
file.close();
PrintWriter out=res.getWriter();
out.println("String entered is"+req.getParameter("x"));
}
catch(IOException ex){System.out.println("Error "+ex);}
catch(Exception e){System.out.println("Error"+e);}
}

}
What is the error you get?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
