Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-6244) ContentDisposition should support UTF-8 filenames
Date Fri, 06 Feb 2015 21:16:35 GMT
Mark Ford created CXF-6244:

             Summary: ContentDisposition should support UTF-8 filenames
                 Key: CXF-6244
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 3.0.0
            Reporter: Mark Ford

I have a need to support uploading files via a JAXRS web service interface with CXF. The file
payload is modeled as an Attachment and everything works fine when the filenames are plain
ASCII or ISO-8859-1. If the filename is passed as UTF-8 chars, then the name is mangled on
the server.

RFC 5987 describes an encoding scheme to support UTF-8 characters in HTTP Headers. It would
be nice if the Attachment / Content-Disposition from CXF supported this. The workaround without
this is to access the Content-Disposition header directly and parse the name yourself.

Something along the lines of:

Content-Disposition = "attachment; filename*=UTF-8''%c2%a3%20and%20%e2%82%ac%20rates

Note that the filename param is actually named "filename*". Perhaps the ContentDisposition
class should check for these variants first and fallback to the non-extended versions?

If accepted as an issue, I could provide a test case and patch.
