Subject [HTTPCLIENT] possible bug?
Date Sat, 20 Apr 2002 09:59:31 GMT
we have following bug -relating the httpclient- in Cocoon:

I have written a simple web-application consisting of an XSP file (
zipcode-info.xsp ) and an XSL stylesheet ( zipcode-info.xsl ) that accesses
two SOAP services at and ( I found these at  from .asmx, I guess they are .Net web services and
the HTTP server is IIS ) using the SOAP logicsheet. This application worked
fine from my office machine ( behind a firewall, so I had to specify http
proxy host and port ), but failed to work ( first, it threw an exception "-1
port out of range" and then when I explicitly specified port 80, it just
hung waiting for a response from the service ) from my home computer ( no
firewall ).

I should add that access to web services deployed under TomCat works fine (
as long as you explicitly specify port 80 for http ).

I looked into the code and figured out that the use of httpclient code (
from org.apache.commons.httpclient.* ) in file is the
culprit. Replaced this file with another ( included in the mail ) that uses
the JDK classes for HTTP transport and everything worked fine.

TIA for your responses!
