Accessing a Domino server using a Java-called URL

I'm trying to access an agent on a Domino server using a URL called from some Java code. I need to authenticate with the server first -- also by using a URL called from Java. I'm finding that the two URLs are opened on different sessions, so the agent doesn't think I have authenticated and fails to run properly.

Is there a way that I can authenticate and run the agent in one go, or run both separately but on the same session? I've found loads of info on the Web regarding "java.net.HttpURLConnection," but this only seems to work if I'm calling a servlet on a Web server.

I think that I can point you in the right direction. You need to use something like this:
String Cookie = URLConnection.

This will retrieve a session authentication cookie –- that's after you have authenticated the first time.

Then you will use this:


to apply the authentication information on your second session with the Domino server.
