Description Chris Hubick 2008-05-29 13:42:51 UTC
Created attachment 22035 [details] Return Date header values in HTTP format When you retrieve a header value from a DirContextURLConnection, it currently returns a string by simply calling .toString() on the internal object, no matter the type of that Object. For Date value headers such as 'Last-Modified', this results in a String formatted according to Java standards, rather than the Date format specified by the HTTP standard as clients of the API would expect. This is a follow-up to bug 44611.
