Hi all,

I have a JSON feed which I am trying to call using URLConnection. I requested the feed with authentication parameters(UserName & Password) and got the cookies of the call, then tried to request the server with cookies, for the feed data, but I received a 422 Http Error response.

Thanks in advance!!
