Multiple posts to HttpURLConnection

I am able to post data and read the response on a HttpURLConnection, and I am able to do so repeatedly if I execute multiple URL.OpenConnection methods, create new input and output streams, etc.

Do I have to repeat all of these steps each time I want to do a POST/Read to the UL?

Thanks

Depends on the HTTP server/servlet/cgi and proxys you are talking to.

I've also noticed that if I post data to a page, then I must read the response in order for the post to happen.  This seems to be the case even if the page doesn't have any response.  

Are my parameter settings causing this?

I'd say you'd have to call openConnection each time then.
Have you just tried reading the response status? This should be enough to make the post happen.

Reading the response code does cause the post to happen.
