Subject Switiching from https to http
Date Thu, 07 Apr 2005 23:08:58 GMT
I am trying to connect to https site and post userid/password to
authenticate and then finally download a html page. The html page is
served from a http link. So basically only userid/password page is
https and rest is http. (I think also there is some redirection going
on after you login.)
The server is running on weblogic. Anyway, I am running into problem
wher I keep getting redirected to security page. For example in my
first attempt (code snippet is below)

      PostMethod post = new PostMethod("https://localhost.com");
            post.addParameter("login", "MYUSER");
            post.addParameter("password", "XXXX");
            post.addParameter("submit", "Submit");*/
            HttpClient client = new HttpClient();
            int status = client.executeMethod(post);
I get This document you requested has moved temporarily.</p>
<p>It's now at <a

Then I tried to follow the redirect 
            Header locationHeader = post.getResponseHeader("location");
            if (locationHeader != null) {
                System.out.println("redirecting to " + redirectLocation);
                post = new PostMethod(redirectLocation);
               status = client.executeMethod(post);

Again I get redirected to same url
( this time around without jsession id)

But if I disable the HTTPS on server, I can work fine. Is there any
idea why this might be happening. The server does create a cookie
after you login but I am not even getting to that point.
