Form-Based Authentication in Siteminder using Httpunit

I am using HttpUnit open source utility  to simulate the browser functionality to talk to siebel server which is protected by Siteminder. The authentication used here is form-based authentication. After i submit the user/pass for the first time, am authenticated by siteminder and am able to retrieve report content from siebel. But the next time i try to access the siebel server (using siebel report url), am again challenged by siteminder which it should not do if am sending all the cookies required by it to understand that am the same user.
The information i need is
1. What all cookies/information are required by siteminder to not to challenge once authenticated?

Solution is HTTPUnit sends a blank FORMCRED cookie in the subsequent request which causes the siteminder to think that the request is next. Just remove this cookie after authenticating with siteminder and thinks should work fine.
