java.lang.IllegalStateException: Already connected at setDoOutput

I'm getting the

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Already connected
exception while trying to run to execute a HTTPS GET request with
HttpsURLConnection API
.

Please find below the code:

HttpsURLConnection con = null;

try {
URL obj = new URL(url);
con = (HttpsURLConnection) obj.openConnection();

con.setRequestMethod("GET");
con.setRequestProperty("Authorization", header);
con.setRequestProperty ("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
String urlParameters = "schema=1.0&form=json&byBillingAccountId={EQUALS,cesar@abc.org}";

con.setDoOutput(true);

DataOutputStream wr = new DataOutputStream(con.getOutputStream());
wr.writeBytes(urlParameters);
wr.flush();
wr.close();

int responseCode = con.getResponseCode();

System.out.println("Response Code = " + responseCode);

BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(
new InputStreamReader(con.getInputStream()));
String inputLine;
StringBuffer response = new StringBuffer();

while ((inputLine = in.readLine()) != null) {
response.append(inputLine);
}
in.close();
con.disconnect();
//print result
System.out.println("Response = " + response.toString());


} catch (MalformedURLException e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
e.printStackTrace();
} catch (IOException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
} finally {
if(con!=null) con.disconnect();
}


Not sure why I'm getting that.

Any idea how to resolve this?

Answer

According to this question setDoOutput is used for PUT and POST requests (they contain a request-entity-body). So there is a conflict with your manually set request method GET.

You are using GET so the url-parameters should be set like in this question and you may just remove setDoOutput.

Also Content-Type does not make sense with GET-requests (source)
