Subject [jira] Commented: (FILEUPLOAD-130) Add ability to get any header from the FileItem and FileItemStream interfaces
Date Thu, 22 Mar 2007 18:33:32 GMT


Jochen Wiedmann commented on FILEUPLOAD-130:

The fact that this issue is important for you is not sufficient for making it a "blocker".
If the support of header information were as important as you consider it, then an enhancement
request would be available long ago.

As for creating the patch: Check out the software

    svn co commons-fileupload

change it as you like and then run

    svn diff

See the subversion manuals for details.

> The FileItem and FileItemStream interfaces should have a way to return back any header
that was encountered during the header parsing for an "Item".  Currently, from the FileItemStatus
you can only get information from the 2 pre-defined headers "Content-Type" and "Content-Disposition"
(Sort-of because the header can not be accessed raw).  Other than the interface changes (including
the change to pass them along in the FileItemFactory interface), it appears that all changes
can be made within the file. (as of 1.2) has
the headers, but the call to create the FileItemStreamImpl on lines 877 and 887 do not include
the headers map.  Further, the parseRequest method uses the FileItemStream interface to build
the FileItem, so you should always have the headers in question.
> The reason for this request is that we have an application that is sending per-part headers
(not precluded by the specs as far as we know of) to provide more information than name and
content-type and using the FileUpload project means that we can no longer find out those header
> [Also, not completely sure, but I believe FileUploadBase.createItem(Map, boolean) on
line 480 is not referenced anymore in this project.]
