Currently we are having an (ASP.NET) Order managemnet application developed using MVC3 architecture. In that to show certificates we redirect to a third party website which contains .Jsp pages. User can enter his credentials and login. This redirection is done through J query.

Now as per new requirement, user wants to login third party website with our website credentials only. I checked for cookies, input parameters on .Jsp page, but not found some needful data.

After goggling implemented this by using WebHttpRequest & WebClient classes in C#. Also used POST method.

In case of WebHttpRequest blank values are passed and login function is getting called and displaying blank field messages (though I have passed correct values.).

And in case of WebClient classes, not getting any error but unable to login.

Can anybody have implemented this anywhere ? How we can pass login parameters to .Jsp pages from Asp.Net application.

Waiting for you reply. Thanks.

You can send your reply -

Please see below code, which I have implemented as of now.

private string LoginESABUsingWebClient()
            string submitButton = "Login";
            submitButton = System.Web.HttpUtility.UrlEncode(submitButton);
                string userName = "wasim";
                string password = "Pass@0-0";
                Users user = new Users();
                user.UserName = userName;
                user.Password = password;

                string uriString = "";
                string postString = "userName=" + userName + "&password=" + password + "&loginButton=" + submitButton;
                Request.Cookies.Add(new HttpCookie("userCountry", "GB"));
                Request.Cookies.Add(new HttpCookie("userLanguage", "EN"));

                WebClient webClient = new WebClient();
                webClient.Headers.Add("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
                webClient.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(userName, password);

                byte[] postData = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(postString);

                byte[] responseData = webClient.UploadData(uriString, "POST", postData);
                string srcString = Encoding.UTF8.GetString(responseData);
                return srcString;
            catch (WebException ex)
                return ex.Message;

        private string LoginThroughWebHttpRequest()
            string userName = "wasim";
