Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-488) FileTransfer.upload does not follow redirects on Android
Date Fri, 13 Apr 2012 14:28:17 GMT


Simon MacDonald commented on CB-488:

Not yet. That was the first thing that jumped out at me. Out of
curiosity is the upload switching from HTTP to HTTPS or vice versa?

> We are trying to upload a local move file to Youtube though the Youtube API. This API
works in such a way that after uploading a file a redirect is done to another location. Unfortunately
the Android implementation of FileTransfer does not follow this redirect. (The iPhone implementation
does follow the redirect.)
> Steps to reproduce:
> - Create a FileTransfer instance and call the upload method following the example at
> - The server the file is posted to (in the sample this is
should do a redirect to another location to reproduce this issue.
> Actual Result:
> - In the success callback the FileUploadResult.responseCode is 302, and the FileUploadResult.response
is "Temporarily Moved" (or similar depending on the webserver that responded with the redirect).
> Expected Result:
> - The redirect is followed and the result of the new location is retreived and represented
in the FileUploadResult instance.
> Or (but lower preference):
> - The FileUploadResult instance also contains the HTTP headers that were sent with the
response so that the Location header (containging the url to redirect to) is known.
