Hello everybody,

I just was thinking about how to realize an automatic login with cookie authentification. I found some bibs from Apache: httpClient
I used this tutotial to figure that out:

Java Tips - How to use HTTP cookies

Authentication works fine, so I get a valid cookie back to my HttpClient instance. But unfortunately if I want to get the actual content page I always get the error of an expired session.

The login works with an SSL secured page. Rest is not secured.

This is my example code:
Java Code:
// Get HTTP client instance
        HttpClient httpclient = new HttpClient();
        httpclient.getHttpConnectionManager().
                getParams().setConnectionTimeout(30000);
        httpclient.getParams().setCookiePolicy(CookiePolicy.BROWSER_COMPATIBILITY);
        
        // POST URL
        String postURL = "https://secure.thisisjustapage.com/start.php";
        PostMethod httppost = new PostMethod(postURL);
        httppost.addParameter("loginName", "mylogin");
        httppost.addParameter("pass", "mypass");
        
        try{
        	httpclient.executeMethod(httppost);
        	System.out.println(httppost.getStatusLine());
        }
        catch(Exception e)
        {
        	e.printStackTrace();
        }
        
        httppost.releaseConnection();

        // Now, I have my valid cookies

        // GET URL
        String strURL = "http://www.thisisjustapage.com/start.php";
        
        // Get HTTP GET method
        GetMethod httpget = new GetMethod(strURL);
        
        int result = 0;
        
        try{
        // Execute HTTP GET
        result = httpclient.executeMethod(httpget);
        }
        catch(Exception e)
        {
        	e.printStackTrace();
        }
        
        // Display status code
        System.out.println("Response status code: " + result);
        
        System.out.println(httpget.getResponseBodyAsString());
        
        // Release current connection to the connection pool 
        // once you are done
        httpget.releaseConnection();
	}
Can anybody help me?

Thanks
Mac
