    Default Fetch Source Code

    Hi to all,
    I'm fetching the source code of the Web Page by using HttpURLConnection. But in some Sites , the exact Source code that i want is not Fetched instead it redirects to some other Web Pages. Is there anyBody having idea how I have to fetch the Source code of Redirected WebPages.


    Thanks in Advace

    HttpURLConnection should follow redirects by default. If you do not want this to be the case, set setFollowRedirects to false.

    You can also go old school low level and just open sockets to the server in question. Thats a lot more work of course, but probably twice if not three times as awesome.

    Haha. I don't think he knows HTTP protocol in a level that allow him to fetch this website, it's too complicated for a beginner. Maybe use BSD sockets in C instead? Will be more funny ;)

    Like I said, thats because of the level of the network stack you are on. Java's URL connections are automatically following the redirect. The thing is, if you are getting a HTTP 302 response from the server, then the page itself probably doesn't have any content. I would be curious exactly what message you are getting from the server in response to the initial query.
