Subject RE: Content length must be specified
Date Mon, 22 Jan 2007 16:40:38 GMT
I'm using Axis 2.0, but I don't think it would have changed. This is
what I did: added an option:


Options.setProperty(HTTPConstants.CHUNKED, false);


This forces Axis to add the Content-Length field in the HTTP Header.


Hope that helps.

Subject: Content length must be specified



I think I have some problem by using axis 1.4 Final with

The request is missing the "content-length" in the HTTP-Header (This
problem is knwon from Axis 1.2 ...). 
Instead there is a "Transfer-Encoding: chunked"! 

Is not a problem as long I am using an Axis Web-Service - but if I call
a Service which is implemented with the old IBM SOAP or a Lotus Notes
Service, I got the following error.

            <faultstring>Content length must be specified.</faultstring>


Is there any known solution for this problem - is it a bug or do there
exists some propertie(s) I can set to handle this problem

Some helpfull hints will be great - Thanks in advance. 



The hole HTTP-Request I am sending: 

POST /DIAwebWebServices/rpcrouter HTTP/1.1 
Content-Type: text/xml; 
charset=utf-8 SOAPAction: "" 
User-Agent: Axis/1.4 
Transfer-Encoding: chunked  

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
   <soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="">

         <ns1:createAccess soapenv:encodingStyle="" xmlns:ns1="xxx"> 
            <clientid xsi:type="xsd:string">xxx</clientid>
