post data to httpconnection http 302

I am tryind to send parameters via post to a httpconnection but always get http response code 302


this is my code:

HttpConnection conn = conn =  (HttpConnection) Connector.open(url, Connector.READ_WRITE, true);
URLEncodedPostData encoder = new URLEncodedPostData(URLEncodedPostData.DEFAULT_CHARSET, false);
conn.setRequestMethod( javax.microedition.io.HttpConnection.POST );
conn.setRequestProperty("Content-Length", String.valueOf(encoder.getBytes().length));
conn.setRequestProperty("Content-type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
OutputStream oStream;
oStream = conn.openOutputStream();
oStream.write( encoder.getBytes() );

 What is courious is that if I use a BrowserField2 I can connect without problem using this code:


BrowserField browserField = new BrowserField();
final MainScreen screen = new MainScreen();
String postData = "param1=value&aparam2=" ...;
Hashtable header = new Hashtable();
header.put("Content-Length", "" + postData.length());
header.put("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
String url = "http://...";
browserField.requestContent(url, postData.getBytes(), header);
UiApplication.getUiApplication().invokeLater(new Runnable() {
	public void run() {
		UiApplication app = UiApplication.getUiApplication();


The problem is that I net get return params and I do not know how to get them using browserField

Re: post data to httpconnection http 302

302 means content moved, most likely you have to issue the request again for the new url (get it from the header).
the browserfield probably follows the redirect by itself.
