I have a requirement in which my java program will call a jsp page through URLConnection class of package and get the response from the jsp page. The response will include some cookies which will have the session information. Please guide me how I can read the response through httpclient package of apache.

My main aim is to create the session between the simple java program and jsp page.

I don't think you can use HttpCLient to read the response if you use for the request. Why not use HttpClient for both? In the HttpMethod interface I see methods like getResponseHeaders and getResponseBody, which would seem to do what you're trying to do.
I agree. Here's the link:
