Hi ,
I need to send a redirect url from my servlet to a cgi app which takes the url and redirects it to the corresponding app.Can I do something like this
and can the client take it as a url string.Thanx
I am using something like
PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(resp.getOutputStream());

Is there a reason you can't use the response.sendRedirect() method ?

The end application is not a browser but is a cgi or servlet etc
I am sending response like this to the client app.Is there any way I can get the response if the following code resides in one application server and the client resides in (ex lets says tomcat and is a servlet.)Can anyone help me how to write a sample client which has to get the response and then redirect it to the browser.Thanx
PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(resp.getOutputStream());

You might look at the HttpClient library to be found in the Apache Commons project.
There have also be a number of discussions of this type of problem here in the last few weeks so you might browse around.
