    Exclamation Passing session ID over HttpURLConnection

    Hi,

    I have a jsp page and a class. I am creating a new object from the class in the jsp and in the class I have HttpURLConnection, the url given is authorization required it mean it checks for the session.

    What I want to do is I want to pass the session in jsp to HttpURLConnection.

    Here is my jsp:

    ExportToPDF pdf = new ExportToPDF();
    pdf.setUrlString("http://www.javaprogrammingforums.com");
    pdf.createPDF(request, response, session);

    and here is my method in my class:

    public void createPDF(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response, HttpSession session) throws IOException, ParserConfigurationException, 
    			SAXException, DocumentException {
     
    		String sessionId = session.getId();
    		URL url	= new URL(this.getUrlString());
     
    		HttpURLConnection urlConn = null;
    		urlConn = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
     
    		urlConn.setRequestMethod("POST");
                    HttpURLConnection.setFollowRedirects(true);
                    urlConn.setDoOutput(true);
                    urlConn.setDoInput(true);
                    urlConn.setUseCaches(false);
                    urlConn.setAllowUserInteraction(false);
                    urlConn.setRequestProperty("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
                    urlConn.setRequestProperty("Content-Language", "en-US");
                    urlConn.setRequestProperty("Cookie", sessionId);
     
    		InputStream byteStream 	= urlConn.getInputStream();
     
    		OutputStream os = response.getOutputStream();


    Can you help me what am I missing here ?
    Thank you.
