Is this a part of the response?

AFAIK, you can't read response headers in Servlets.

Is the html file on the server or is it being uploaded to the server?

i will get the http post message from a servlet.
& the post message will contain the header fields defined like meta as i have mentioned above.
So, i need to read these meta fields in my servlet for further processing.

I'm not sure how meta tags should be getting in to the header fields of a POST request. These are the sorts of headers usually found in an HTTP request:

From
Accept
Accept-Encoding
Accept-Language
User-Agent
Referer
Authorization
Charge-To
If-Modified-Since
Pragma

I order for the servlet to receive and read meta tags, you would have to do something like:

1. Read the meta tags at the client and put them into a POST query string
or
2. Upload the html file and extract its meta tags
