Java, HttpURLConnection and setting the content length
|August 15, 2011||Posted by forumadmin under TechQns||
I’m setting the length of the content in my HttpURLConnection, for a PUT.
urlConnection.setRequestProperty("Content-Length", "" + responseJSONArray.toString(2).getBytes("UTF8").length);
The actual number of bytes is 74. However, when I query the content length of
urlConnection I’m returned
-1. Why is that? And why are lengths not equal (given that I set this)?
I must set the content-length because I’m receiving a
411 response from the server.
(Also, in the Sun examples I’ve seen the second argument of
setRequestProperty is of type
int and not
String, which seems odd.)
