Description
In jinstall and installer wrapper, when it tries to determine if user is online, it tries to make a HTTP HEAD request to http://java.sun.com. However, the current implementation uses the Wininet API incorrectly, and it generates a HTTP HEAD request to http://java.sun.com/http://java.sun.com. Since this file does not exist, it results in many unnecessary redirections and eventually be redirected to an error page which results in 200 (OK). Although jinstall and installer wrapper still works because of the status code 200, the malformed URL causes unnecessary redirections and errors on server side.
