Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1372) Content-Disposition header in form data does not adhere to RFC6266
Date Mon, 17 Jun 2013 12:39:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1372?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13685502#comment-13685502

-----------------------------------------

Hi Oleg,

I'm not arguing for removal of the BROWSER_COMPATIBLE mode, provided you are convinced this
is the way browsers actually behave.  It's hard to believe that it actually works, though,
because the encoding of fields other than the one with the filename is left as mime default
(ISO-8859-1) with no way to change it.  I can believe that browsers might omit the Content-Type
field unless the encoding differed from ISO-8859-1, but I find it hard to believe they'd *always*
omit it.

I'm in no position to do extensive testing with multiple browsers, as you know.  And it is
probably more productive to create a multipart mode corresponding to RFC6532 than to mess
with the BROWSER_COMPATIBLE mode that is in place - unless we can show that the BROWSER_COMPATIBLE
mode is not really browser compatible after all.  Which is why I raise the issue.

> The Content-disposition header, as it appears for an item of form data, does not allow
for UTF-8 encoding as specified in RFC6266, as described here:
> http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6266
> This is causing ManifoldCF severe problems working in Japan with Solr, since Solr content
extraction relies on accurate filenames in order to determine the likely document encoding.
> A fix for the 4.2.x branch will be needed, I am afraid.
