com.pega.pegarules.priv.context.CookieDisabledException: An error has occurred which indicates that your browser does not support Cookies. You must enable Cookies in order to use this application

Steps to Reproduce

1. Send a SnapStart URL to PRPC through a Java program. This is a URL that includes user and password information:

2. In the Java program:
// SEND THE URL REQUEST TO PROCESS COMMANDER httpConnection = url.openConnection();

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is software use/operation error. The agents were directly called from a normal Java program. 


You cannot call agents directly from a normal Java program. You should use SOAP, JSR-94 or one of the other service based (headless) engine invocations.
