Can i set a Header say "NAME" as the header name and value is "MYNAME" in the response object
and call the response.sendRedirect( url ) and Can i access the same header ( "NAME" ) in the redirected url?
That is
response.setHeader("NAME","MYNAME");
response.sendRedirect("http://myhost/servlet/MyServlet");
After request reaching to MyServert, Can I get the value of "NAME" from the Header?

Thanks,
AVNUS

I've never tested this, You could setup you own test case and see. Let us know what the results are.


I Hope This Helps

Unlikely. You would have to rely on the client browser to copy your response headers into its next request. As far as I'm aware there is no requirement or reason for a client to do this.
