Subject post redirect
Date Fri, 07 Mar 2003 16:23:48 GMT
I've been working with httpclient for a couple of days to build a Cocoon 
transformer that helps me build pipelines to navigate web sites and 
extract data. I've read the parts of RFC2616 that deal with redirects 
and state they are automatic on the client only for GET and HEAD 
methods. I know the JDC and a web site I wrote use POST for the login 
form and issue a redirect as a response. Any browser I've tried this 
with honors the redirect. I can send some test code I've been using to 
test the automated login (that includes handling cookies).
Anyway, I've observed browsers honoring the redirect on a POST, can't 
httpclient be configured that way? Looking at the source code tells me 
no. (I've been using 2.0 alpha 3).
