Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-317) HTTP Client doesn't support multipart/related content-type
Date Wed, 07 Nov 2007 08:22:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-317?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12540696

Ortwin Glück commented on HTTPCLIENT-317:


> String mimeType = "application/soap+xml"; // or "text/xml\", or doesn't actually matter?
> return "multipart/related; type=\"" + mimeType + "\"; start=\"" + ROOTPART_NAME + "\";
" + header.substring( ix );

AFAIK it makes no sense to specify a type attribute. The MIME type of this part is multipart/related,
period. It is a container whose body (beofre the boundary) is usually just empty (or contains
a dummy string), and there is no need to specify the type of this emtpyness. 

It is also incorrect to reuse the MIME boundary of the parent. It is a new container and must
therefore start with a new boundary string (and close the boundary after the container ends).
