Subject Inherit cookies from applet session
Date Thu, 16 Aug 2012 08:40:50 GMT


I am replacing some code in an applet, where HttpURLConnection was used,
with HttpClient (Version 4.2.1). All has gone well so far, however
unlike HttpURLConnection it seems that HttpClient doesn't inherit the
cookies from the session of the applet and as such the HttpClient
connection gets back a login page as I have the URL secured. I already
have an authenticated session as I authenticated to access the applet in
the first place. Is there a way to inherit this with HttpClient or do I
either need to re-authenticate or need to get the jsessionid (plus any
other cookies that may exist) from the applet's session and recreate
these cookies for the HttpClient request by hand? Ideally I would like
it to perform as URLConnection, and feel that perhaps I am missing


Many Thanks
