Hello friends..
I am including my test code which establishes a ssl connection to a server and posts an HTTP Post request .which then sends the response back.
This code works fine with jdk1.3.1_01.
But when i try to run the same code sample on j2sdk1.4.2_02, i get Socket Exception. Unexcpected end of file error just after the System.out.println(hello....10)statement. On searching the net i found there is a bug in URLConnection's getContent Method of j2sdk1.4.2_02....which has been fixed in i downladed the same.....and tried to run the same....but now it gives
what could be the reason??
pl. throw some light..

String str = connection.getContentType();
// get the response body reader
java.lang.Object response = connection.getContent(); connReader = new ( response );
// read the response to the output
while ( (c = != -1 )
req.setAttribute("RESP_XML", sb.toString());
catch (Exception e)
req.setAttribute("RESP_XML", e.toString());

if(reader != null)
if(writer != null)
RequestDispatcher dispatcher;
dispatcher = getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher("/abcd.jsp");
dispatcher.forward(req, res);
catch (Exception e1) {

Lusha, could you please post the IOException stack trace that is being thrown? That usually helps in defining the problem.
I agree. Here's the link:
