Hi ,
I have the following code in a servlet

...And I have the following html file to invoke this servlet:

When I run this shows error 405 ...Resource not allowed in the browser. If I replace the method "HEAD" with "GET" in the html and doHead with doGet in the servlet, then it runs ok and the servlet passes on the control to the doPost method successfully.
Why is the servlet not able to process the request in the doHead method?
Thanks in advance.
I agree. Here's the link:
subject: doHead
It's not a secret anymore!
