Hi,

I had a post similiar to this and it got stuck so i'm posting another here.

I tried to send values from a java application to the following site:
http://websms.starhub.com/websms/sendSMS/index.jsp

but it doesn't work. I've checked the http and POST/GET request and found that it sent its values to another server somewhere else.

GET http://server-sg.imrworldwide.com/a1.js HTTP/1.0

Accept: */*

Referer: http://websms.starhub.com/websms/session/p_checkSession3.jsp?nR=6591838845&n=testname

It seems that it requires cookies to pass through but i have no idea on how to do it.
So is there anyone that can help and try on that site?

I would use HttpClient... It handles cookies and forwarding and everything for you...

http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/httpclient/

I'll post an example when I get to work...

I'm not entirely sure if I understand you correctly, so please excuse me if my comment doesn't make sense.
If you're trying to send a cookie to a server that you're accessing through a URLConnection, you can set the cookie as a request property.
   urlConn.setRequestProperty("Cookie", cookieString);
Of course since these are coookies you can have multiple values in that single cookieString. That why you'll find a nice function on http://www.rgagnon.com/javadetails/java-0092.html

If you're trying to accomplish something else, then please provide a small code sample so I can see what you're working on.
If it's related to that specific SMS sending side, then I'm afraid I can't be of much help.

Giant beat me to it.

Tim's suggestion could also work, but requires you to use a different library that's not anywhere near a drop-in replacement for Sun's HTTP client. But the Apache commons-httpclient is a very good implementation, so you might indeed want to consider it.

to get the cookie value:

String cookie = connection.getHeaderField("set-cookie");

then to set it in subsequent request:

connection.setRequestProperty("cookie", cookie);

Hi all,

>> GET http : / /server-sg.imrworldwide.com/a1.js HTTP/1.0
The  *.imrworldwide.com  domain name is used by the "Red Sherriff" spyware (see http://cexx.org/sheriff.htm).
