Subject Does HTTPClient consults with browser when it is running under java plugin.
Date Thu, 31 Jul 2003 23:22:44 GMT

I am trying to use httpclient in an applet that runs in jdk 1.4.2 jre. Our
web application (j2ee 1.3) security enabled and uses form login
(j_security_check) and deployed on websphere 5.x app server . After
successful login user gets applet page. When ever we make sun's
URLConnection to my server, websphere recognizes me as previously
authenticated user since sun's URLConnection using Java Plug-in, Java
Plug-in consults the browser to determine if a cookie should be sent along
with it which it received after login. If so, the HTTP/HTTPS request will
contain the cookie as part of the header. Typically websphere sends a
session cookie and security cookie (encrypted LTPAToken).

Where httpclient request to server after login, websphere treating as
unauthenticated user and forcing user to provide login information again.
http client uses sockets directly rather than suns URLConnection.

I have tried  following

After successful login. we contacted the server through sun's URLConnection
to steel the all headers & cookies.
Copied all header/cookies form a sun's URLConnection to my server to
httpclient connection. Still my server recognizes me as new
user/unauthenticated user.

Help me if anybody knows what else suns urlconnection is doing we are not
doing through httpclient...
