Subject RE: url is Re: How to accept cookies in HttpClient.
Date Tue, 21 Sep 2004 23:14:17 GMT
By the time you pasting the link, your IE probably obtained the cookie already, or it is showing
you a cached page.  This is what we should all blame IE.  :)

Anyway, reading your code, I suggest you don't muck with the cookie yourself, since cookie
can change from time to time on the server side.  Hardcoding your cookie is probably worse,
even you get it work now, it may blow up sooner or later.  What I recommend you to do is to
clear your IE as much as possible, (including cache, cookie, and close it and then reopen
it), capture exactly and all the urls going to the server.  Then copy those into your HttpClient
code.  HttpClient will handle the dynamic cookie automatically for you. (I see you setting
the cookie policy, great, that is what it for).  

Since you can obtain your previous cookie, I assume you already know how to capture all network
traffic coming out of your IE.  If not, download a tool like Ethereal to help you do the monitoring
and capturing.

Hi, Michael, 
 
Thanks a lot for your info. It's weired...In my computer, after I clean cookies, I will go
to the error page if I click the link in this mail directly, but go to the right login page
if I copy the link to the address bar and press enter key. 
 
The initial link is link1, http://resources.hewitt.com/jpmc/
, which will be automatically redirected to link 2, http://lb32.resources.hewitt.com/sg1dgp9/tbiappt300?nodeId=GreetingPage&clientId=09813
, Then when you click logon button, you can go to the link3 (the link I mentioned in my last
email, this is the login page.)
 
I can go to link2 by using HttpClient, but I will go to the error page when I try to access
link3 using HttpClient (I have checked the cookies created in link2, and add them when I try
to access link3)
 
The source is :
        SpiderUtil.installSluttySocketFactory();
        client = new HttpClient();
        client.getState().setCookiePolicy(CookiePolicy.COMPATIBILITY );
        .........................
       .............................<get link2>
        client.getHostConfiguration().setHost("lb32.resources.hewitt.com", 443, "https");
        <get namevaluePairs from XML files here>
        HostConfiguration conf = new HostConfiguration();
        conf.setHost("lb32.resources.hewitt.com", 443, "https");
        GetMethod defaultpage = new GetMethod("/sg1dgp9/tbiappt300/TbiaAuthPage");
        defaultpage.setFollowRedirects(false);
        defaultpage.setQueryString(nameValuePairs);              
        Cookie mycook= new Cookie("lb32.resources.hewitt.com", "JSESSIONID_SG1_DGP9", "000104LCHDF43OXZWZ03OD402DQ:uvjppnh8",
"/", null, false);
        Cookie mycook2 = new Cookie("lb32.resources.hewitt.com", "YBR_PROFILE", "09813:1095803338557:15:false:YBRSessTS1095803338505",
"/sg1dgp9", null, false);
        HttpState httpstate=new HttpState();
        httpstate.addCookie(mycook);
        httpstate.addCookie(mycook2);
        client.executeMethod(conf, defaultpage, httpstate);

Open your alternate browser (Netscape? Mozilla?), or go to another machine and open IE, goto
the url you sent, you will see the error page. Exactly it is the cookie you missed.

So, clear your IE's cookie cache, find your way back to the site using the clean IE (well,
IE never clean as it should), then follow the same path in HttpClient.

Hello, 

I've forgotten to tell you guys the url, which is:

https://lb32.resources.hewitt.com/sg1dgp9/tbiappt300/TbiaAuthPage?Submit=Log+On&clientId=09813&emClientId=&create=1095797686983&remoteServer=false&bp=false&sslActive=true&QATest=null&nodeId=EnterTheSitePage&u=1095797686983&wdw=YBRPrimary&JavaScriptEnabled=TRUE&lDt=1095797520203&ulDt=1095801760921&fn=GreetingPage&fWdw=YBRPrimary&isSSO=false&isYTR=false&%5EuniqueValue=1095797686985&%5EendOfForm=EOF

I can reach the login page by accessing this url in IE, but can not by httpClient. If any
comments, I will appreciate it. 

Thanks.

Hi, All,

I got a problem when I try to go to a login page of a website. My code is like this:
GetMethod defaultpage = new GetMethod(link);
//defaultpage.setFollowRedirects(true);
defaultpage.setQueryString(nameValuePairs);
//defaultpage.setRequestBody(nameValuePairs);
client.executeMethod(defaultpage);
It's very simple, but I can not go to the login page expected, but redirected to an error
page, which has the following information:

You've received this message for one of the following reasons: 
The Enter the Site page is bookmarked or added to your favorites. If so, please delete that
bookmark. You can bookmark the Welcome page instead. 

Your browser doesn't support cookies, or you've set your browser to not accept cookies. Please
use one of the recommended browsers or set your browser preferences to accept cookies. Contact
your browser developer (for example, Microsoft or Netscape) if you need help setting your
browser preferences. 

Is this a cookies problem? If I reach the website by IE, no problem happens. Please help.
Thanks.
