This was very hard for me to find in Google. I almost spend 5 minutes instead of the usual 32 seconds to find the answer.

So here it is:

 

// Disable automatic redirects for all HTTP requests
HttpURLConnection.setFollowRedirects(false);
 
// Disable automatic redirects for a particular connection
try {
    // Create a URLConnection object for a URL
    URL url = new URL("http://hostname:80");
    URLConnection conn = url.openConnection();
 
    // Disable automatic redirects just for this connection
    HttpURLConnection httpConn = (HttpURLConnection)conn;
    httpConn.setInstanceFollowRedirects(false);
 
    // Send the request to the server
    conn.connect();
} catch (MalformedURLException e) {
} catch (IOException e) {
}
