It's impossible to override the Rhino (maybe others?) User Agent #98

I tried to override the HTTP user agent being sent when using the http module with Rhino by editing the start up script but "Java/1.6.0_18" kept getting appended to it.

I edited narwal-rhino to include:

JAVA_OPTS="-Dhttp.agent=Mozilla/5.0"

But requests in my Apache log looked like:

71.232.15.*** - - [20/May/2010:01:41:02 -0400] "POST / HTTP/1.1" 200 5285 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 Java/1.6.0_18"

I didn't have a chance to dig into this further, but patching the http module to include:

connection.setRequestProperty ( "User-agent", "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.19) Gecko/20081202 Firefox (Debian-2.0.0.19-0etch1)" );

will let you manually override it in the code.

-Thanks
