I was adding this method in my client code:
HttpURLConnection connection = (HttpURLConnection) new URL(url).openConnection(); connection.setRequestProperty("Content-Type","application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
When i try to call the following method : it does retrieve "
" What can be the possible reason for this or i am doing something wrong for setting the content type.
Any clues ?

connection.getContentType() returns the Content-Type as returned by the server.
