Subject Re: HttpClient and Siteminder

Hello Robert,

I had the same problem with HttpClient and SiteMinder, received the same
Exception at the exact same phase.

I noticed I was using commons-httpclient-3.1.jar. I fixed this error by
changing back to the 3.0.1 version of the jar.

Can't explain why this threw the exception with the newer .jar while parsing
the redirect URL - I'm no  Java Programming guru ;-)


Cheers,

Olli
