Hi there

I'm programming kinda Socket Connection to access a website's user-only sites. Therefore I access the site for the first time and get the cookie called 'PHPSESSID'. I remember it and use it for the upcoming connections, but this doesn't work. Therefore I checked the cookies that are transmitted on other call of the website (with HTTP Live Headers - firefox plugin). There was a big amount of data and I copied it and tried it with it. Than it worked
My Request looked like that:

So, does anyone of you know where I could get all these params? because they aren't listed if I access the website for the first time.

Or.. is there even a mechanism in java to handle cookies?

Thank you very much for the help!

Apache HttpClient handles cookies.
