Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCORE-372) ChunkedInputStream and ChunkDecoder allows closing chunk absence
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2014 18:10:10 GMT
Dmitry Potapov created HTTPCORE-372:

             Summary: ChunkedInputStream and ChunkDecoder allows closing chunk absence
                 Key: HTTPCORE-372
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCORE-372
             Project: HttpComponents HttpCore
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: HttpCore, HttpCore NIO
    Affects Versions: 4.4-alpha1
            Reporter: Dmitry Potapov

I've found that both these classes treats chunked streams without closing chunk as complete
streams without any errors. This contradicts RFC2616 ยง3.6.1

Consider the following scenario:

1. HttpClient sends request to Server
2. Server accepts request and send response headers with Transfer-Encoding: chunked
3. Server sends first chunk completely and dies with segfault before sending the next chunk
4. HttpClient receives response headers and creates ChunkedInputStream
5. ChunkedInputStream reads this first chunk and encounters eof

Expected result:
IOException thrown indicating incomplete response

Actual result:
No exception is thrown, -1 is returned on the next read and nobody knows that response is
