Hi ,

I have to send a cookie through an http post from a java program .

For some other reasons I am using a HttpsUrlConnection to make a conenction with the server.
How can I send the cookie?

It will be useful to look at the format for a URL request:

You will need to use the HttpsUrlConnection.setRequestProperty() method to set the Cookie.

(If using HttpsUrlConnection is not a mandate, please consider using Apache HttpClient).

StringBuffer sb1 = new StringBuffer();

sb1.append(<Name> );
sb1.append(< value >+ ";");

one more

sb1.append(<Name> );
sb1.append(< value >+ ";");

specify name and value for cookies..if u have more just repeat above 3 lines.

then add cookies to url header.

header.append("Cookie: ");

//write header information.

hope this will help u.
