Default Cookie Management in Java applications

Please Login to Remove!

While your program will work in simulator, you actually have to manage yuor cookies in yuor app, since it won't work otherwise on the actual device. The reason, is that MDS manages cookies for you, however on the device, there is no MDS.

Thus, managing your request yuo have to write something like:
if(this.cookie != null) _connection.setRequestHeader("Cookie", this.cookie);
and managing the response:
this.cookie = _connection.getHeaderField("Set-Cookie");

i've just done the way you've mentioned above but now the response given from the server is multiple cookies( two cookies are sent)
these two cookies can be easily viewed from a browser which are as below
cookie: login=3
cookie: logincookies= <some session id>

but on device when i performed debug i came to know that the device receives the first cookie(i.e. login=3) twice(duplicated) instead of two different cookies

both of these cookies are required for me to use in the webservice, do you have any clue as to where am i going wrong.
let me know bro.

Bad idea!

Use the following instead:

for (int i = 0; _connection.getHeaderFieldKey(i) != null; i ++) {
   String headerKey = _connection.getHeaderFieldKey(i);

   if (headerKey.equalsIgnoreCase("set-cookie")) {
      String cookie = _connection.getHeaderField(i);
      // process or save the cookie
Otherwise you will return the same string.
