Subject Betr.: Re: Passing request headers
Date Fri, 08 Apr 2005 08:48:47 GMT




Hi Volkm@r

Thanks for your answer. I think we have a little misunsderstanding. I'm not
very experienced in the web world, so perhaps I use the wrong terminology,
in which case, please straighten me out. Or, if I completely missed your
point, straighten me out as well :-)

There are many ways to pass request parameters to HtmlGenerator, but what I
want to do is change the outgoing request header. In Java, I would do it
like this:
      URL url = new URL( "http://old-server/legacy.html" );
      URLConnection conn = url.openConnection();
      conn.setRequestProperty( "accept-language", "nl" );
After that you can open a stream and let Tidy do its thing. This works: if
I give it "nl" I get 08-04-2005 and if I give it "en-us" I get 04/08/2005
if that date happens to be in the html.
I don't see any way to tell HtmlGenerator to do that. Perhaps Upayavira is
right and I need to subclass HtmlGenerator. The Cocoon source is very new
to me so this will take some time.
