Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-488) FileTransfer.upload does not follow redirects on Android
Date Thu, 12 Apr 2012 14:15:16 GMT
FileTransfer.upload does not follow redirects on Android

                 Key: CB-488
             Project: Apache Callback
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: CordovaJS
    Affects Versions: 1.5.0, 1.4.0, 1.3.0
         Environment: Andoid device: Samsung Galaxy S Plus
            Reporter: Wouter
            Assignee: Filip Maj

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.
