Hi guys,

Supposing your application has a jsp page starting with http:// ...
which has some fields that must be posted to a secure url starting with https:// ...

When posting such page, are these fields sent as request params BEFORE or AFTER the secure conection with the server be established?

As per my understanding, I think these fields are sent before just because the http protocol is stateless and there is no way to keep these params for sending later.

It's only my supposition. I'd like to hear your expert opinions.

I agree. Here's the link:
