HTTP Test



Click here for a larger image.

Environment: VS7 C# .NET

I wrote this application to see what the HttpWebRequest and HttpWebResponse classes did. I am not a Web programmer and I'm not that familiar with HTTP or HTML, so I wanted to see what these function do. I'm sure someone else who has a more intimate knowledge of these protocols could do a lot more. I was unsure of what I was seeing, which is why I wrote WebPageGet.

private void GetButtonClick(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
HttpWebRequest httpReq;
HttpWebResponse httpResp;
Stream httpStream;

  m_results.Text = "";
  MessageBeep(100);
try
{
  ASCIIEncoding ASCII = new ASCIIEncoding();
  byte[] buf = new byte[ 128000 ];
  m_header_list.Items.Clear();
  httpReq    = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(m_url.Text);
  httpResp   = (HttpWebResponse)httpReq.GetResponse();
  httpStream = httpResp.GetResponseStream();
  int count  = httpStream.Read(buf, 0, buf.Length);
  httpStream.Close();

  string tempstr = ASCII.GetString(buf, 0, count);
  ChangeLfToCrLf(ref tempstr);
  m_results.Text = tempstr;
  for(int i=0; i < httpResp.Headers.Count; ++i)
    m_header_list.Items.Add( httpResp.Headers.Keys[i] + " = " 
                             + httpResp.Headers[i]);
  for(int i=0; i< httpResp.Cookies.Count; i++)
    m_cookie_list.Items.Add( httpResp.Cookies[i]);

}
catch (Exception except)
{
  m_results.Text = "Generic Exception: {0}" 
                 + except.Message.ToString();
}
  MessageBeep(10000);
}

    Tanks for useful program, but after WebRequest object is created it's necessary to initialize CookieContainer property. If it's not done, then amount of cookies will be always 0.

    Solution: After WebRequest.Create add string:
    httpReq.CookieContainer = new CookieContainer();

  • Instead of only managing projects organizations do need to manage value! "Doing the right things" and "doing things right" are the essential ingredients for successful software and systems delivery. Unfortunately, with distributed delivery spanning multiple disciplines, geographies and time zones, many organizations struggle with teams working in silos, broken lines of communication, lack of collaboration, inadequate traceability, and poor project visibility. This often results in organizations "doing the …
