Hi ppl, I have an requirment to call an servlet from a jsp, but that servlet requires authentication, i have the user information in the jsp. My requirment is to connenct to the servlet with user information to login first, using URL or URLConnection classes and then using the same connection I have to call the servlet again with different parameters..
for example , If "/publish" is my servlet I will pass ?module=com.med.phd.LoginModule&action=verify&user=xxx&password=yyy first and then call the same "/publish" servlet with different set of parameters

What does the servlet do once it has authenticated a user?
If it creates a session, the cookie identifying that session will be passed back in the response to the authentication request. Your task will be to locate that cookie and send it with subsequent requests so the servlet will consider the user authenticated.
