In this program we are going to going to make a servlet which will retrieve all the Http request header.
To make a program over this firstly we need to make one class named GettingSnoopingHeader. In HttpRequest there are too many headers. To retrieve all the headers firstly we need to call the getWriter() which returns PrintWriter object and helps us to display all the headers. To get a header names call the method getHeaderNames() of the request object which will return the Enumeration of the headers. Now to retrieve all the headers from the Enumeration use the method hasMoreElements(). This method checks whether there are more headers or not. To display the output on your browser use the PrintWriter object.
The code of the program is given below:
