Does anyone know any URL link or book that lists all posible header values that could be set by setHeader() and setDateHeader() method?
Thanks.

Frank,
Here's a link to a chapter from Marty Hall's Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages book. This chapter covers the httpResponse Headers.

Hope this helps,
Hmenon

Internet communcation standards (like nntp, smtp, http, etc) are usually RFCs (Request For Comments). For HTTP 1.1, the authoritative definition is RFC2068. Give it a go, it is not as tough going as you might think.

Thanks, Peter, tried that route already. Just want to find something quick and easy. Do not we have too much to read? But if that is the only choice, I will do it.
