I have a java application that is connecting to a URL and downloading files using the following code:

HttpURLConnection connection = (HttpURLConnection) url;

Several different users will be using this application, however,  I want the URL connection to think a specific user is calling it each time.  Is there a way to change userid in the Java code so that it appears as though a specific user is running the application?

Thank You

for connection you need user name nad password right ??


HttpURLConnection connection = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
connection .setRequestProperty("UserName", userName);
  connection .setRequestProperty("Password", password);

The connection does not require a user name or password input.  The userID is obtained by the website from the network connection.  In other words, if I am logged into the network as user = 123456, then the website is picking that user id from the network connection.

you can have log just before the Http call which user is calling the service.
you can associate some additional information sessionid,etc.


any way your question is not clear, kindly brief with the steps your trying to do with this task?
