You can read HTTP headers with ; in HTTP you can specify meta-info on the request; what kind of content does the client accept, what languages are supported, what are the specifics of the web browser etc. Some of these headers are wrapped for you in specific methods, but you can read all the headers using getHeader. There is also a method which return an Enumeration for all header names.
For more detailed info:
