Subject Possible bug : problem getting request parameters while uploading a file
Date Wed, 12 Mar 2003 10:36:30 GMT

      Hi !

I've recently upgraded from Cocoon 2.0.3 to Cocoon 2.0.4 and something
doesn't work anymore.
I've posted a message on cocoon-users but no one seems to be able to
answer me.

Here's a summary of the problem :
I need to upload a file from an HTML form. I use the automatic upload
provided by cocoon and the RequestParamAction to pass some parameters to
my personal upload action.
With cocoon 2.0.3, it works as I need.
With cocoon 2.0.4, the behavior changes when method="GET" or "POST", and
when the FILE input is filled or not ... really strange ...


Here are the messages I sent to the cocoon-users list. They give more

    Hi !

I've recently upgraded to Cocoon 2.0.4 and something doesn't work
anymore : I now can't get a parameter value in the sitemap with the
RequestParamAction and the POST method.

Here's my configuration :
Cocoon 2.0.4, JDK 1.3, Jetty, Jboss
MultipartRequestFactoryImpl (defined in a web.xml file)

Here's the way I use it :
I want to get a parameter named 'actiontype' and defined in a form and I
want to pass its value through the sitemap to an action.

I've got a sitemap.xmap file :
<!-- T e a c h e r W o r k
{1} teacher work Id
<map:match pattern="teacherWork/*.html">
  <map:act type="request">
    <map:parameter name="parameters" value="true"/>
      <map:act type="upload">
        <!-- This parameter determines the action -->
        <map:parameter name="actiontype" value="{actiontype}"/>

And I've got an HTML form (this page is dynamicly generated, here's an
instance) :  <form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post"
  <input type="hidden" name="actiontype" value="main"/>
  <input type="file" name="filename"/>

And I've got a cocoon action of my own with a logger showing me the value
of the parameter named 'actiontype'.

With cocoon 2.0.3, everything works fine.
With cocoon 2.0.4 : when method="post" the logs say actiontype = '' when
method="get" the logs say actiontype = 'main' Everything would be
alright in the best world if i didn't need to use the POST method (in
order to have a FilePartFile object in the request).

I'm sure the only difference is the version of cocoon that I'm using
although there's still the possibility that I forgot some other change of

Would anybody help me ?


    Hi !

I've recently posted an issue, and I've got new elements.
My problem is :
I can't pass a request parameter through the sitemap when I put a file
path in an HTML FILE input and send it as POST multipart/form-data to a
Cocoon 2.0.4 servlet.

When I don't try to upload any file, I can pass the parameter value. When
I try to upload a file, I can't get the parameter value anymore. Actually,
it's as if there are no parameters in the request.

Can somebody tell me if he can reproduce this problem on his environment ?
