Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-857) some sites return 404 status code even though they are accessible by all browsers
Date Tue, 30 Jun 2009 14:04:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-857?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12725634#action_12725634

Ortwin Glück commented on HTTPCLIENT-857:

Sami, it's not an issue of the client. It issues correct HTTP requests. If the website chooses
to respond with 404, its their decision. I suspect the website checks for some additional
headers that are not present by default (and not required by any spec). If you want this fixed,
I suggest you invest some time and investigate what kind of request artifacts these sites
expect. The "fix" would then be to include these headers in your requests.
