Servlet for reading headers in a HTTP request E-mail
User Rating: / 9
PoorBest 

This J2EE tip is demonstrating a method of reading a header in a request. When an HTTP client (e.g. a browser) sends a request, it is required to supply a request line (usually GET or POST). If it wants to, it can also send a number of headers, all of which are optional except for Content-Length, which is required only for POST requests. Here are some example of headers: Accept-Encoding, Accept-Charset, Connection, Content, Cookie, Pragma etc.

import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;

public class ShowHeaders  extends HttpServlet {
  public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request,
                    HttpServletResponse response)
              throws ServletException, IOException {
    response.setContentType("text/html");
    
    PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
        String title = "Servlet Example: Showing Request Headers";
        Enumeration headerNames = request.getHeaderNames();

    while(headerNames.hasMoreElements()) {
            String headerName = (String)headerNames.nextElement();
      String headerValue = request.getHeader(headerName);
          
      out.println(headerName +"\t"+headerValue);
      }
  }

  public void doPost(HttpServletRequest request,
                     HttpServletResponse response)
               throws ServletException, IOException {
      doGet(request, response);
    }
}
