Hi All,
I am using HttpUrlConnection to get connect and get rexponse from a servlet. Since i need to handle redirection I am handling it myself. But the cookies set to the Response in the servet b4 redirecting is not available in my client. is there any to get this on the clinet. But bi am getting the JSESSIOn cookie which is created by the server. Following is the code snippet
URL serverUrl = new URL(url);
HttpURLConnection con = (HttpURLConnection)serverUrl.openConnection();
con.setDoOutput(true);
con.setDoInput( true );
con.setRequestMethod("POST");
con.setFollowRedirects( false );
while( true ){
statusCode = con.getResponseCode();
//System.out.println( statusCode );
if( statusCode == 302 ){
String location = con.getHeaderField("Location");
System.out.println( location );
// Only JSESSION cookie is retunrned...and not my own cookie
String cookie = con.getHeaderField("set-cookie");
URL u = new URL( location );
con.disconnect();
con = ((HttpURLConnection)u.openConnection());
con.setFollowRedirects( false );
con.setRequestMethod("GET");
con.connect();
continue;
}
break;
}

Thanks in Advance
