Subject RE: redirect returning 200(ok)?
Date Fri, 28 Jan 2005 10:27:46 GMT
This is getting more and more interresting. 

With followRedirects off, I get a new location claiming to be an .mp3. 
I initiate a new GET method to get the file, but it turns out to be a text/html. 
The response status is 200OK, so no redirect. However the HTML (See below) has a 
redirect in the meta data: src="http://sinergy-networks.com/klitekture/downloads/LOD_live_croma04.mp3"

I pressume HTTPClient would not be able to interpret that, as this would the job of an HTML
parser like Internet
Explorer right? 

Thanks, Still in learning mode.

Hi Roland, 

Thanks for the superfast reply. Turning of auto-redirect solved the issue. 
It introduced another problem tough. The content-length in the original location is set,
but not in the re-direct location.

HttpClient handles some redirects automatically. If you don't want
that, use HttpMethod.setFollowRedirects(false)

> How do I get the redirect location/URL from a 200OK? 

You don't ;-)

You can enable the wire log. For instructions, see
