I'm trying to write a ClassLoader application which will fetch a couple of
classes over the net from the HTTP server.
i'm using kaffe beta 4.

URl url= new URL(urlname);
URLConnection connection = url.openConnection();
*********   int length= connection.getContentLength();   **********
byte[] data= new byte[length];
InputStream ins= connection.getInputStream();

However, the methods connection. { getContentLength() , getContentEncoding()
, getcontentType() } fail by returning  -1 or null... 
The same code works fine with sun's jvm...

what could be the possible problem?
