java how to find the redirected url of a url
java how to find the redirected url of a url ¬†using -'java,url,http-headers'
I am accessing web pages through java as follows:
URLConnection con = url.openConnection();
But in some cases, a url redirects to another url. So I want to know the url to which the previous url redirected.
Below are the header fields that I got as a response:
null-->[HTTP/1.1 200 OK]
last-modified-->[Sat, 17 Apr 2010 13:45:35 GMT]
Date-->[Sat, 17 Apr 2010 13:45:35 GMT]
Expires-->[Sat, 17 Apr 2010 14:45:35 GMT]
Set-Cookie-->[cl_def_hp=copenhagen; domain=.craigslist.org; path=/; expires=Sun, 17 ¬†¬†¬†¬†Apr 2011 13:45:35 GMT, cl_def_lang=en; domain=.craigslist.org; path=/; expires=Sun, 17 Apr 2011 13:45:35 GMT]
So at present, I am constructing the redirected url from the value of the Set-Cookie header field. In the above case, the redirected url is copenhagen.craigslist.org
Is there any standard way through which I can determine which url the particular url is going to redirect.
I know that when a url redirects to other url, the server sends an intermediate response containing a Location header field that tells the redirected url but I am not receiving that intermediate response through the url.openConnection(); method.
