Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-552) "content-type" header behavior from external processes is poorly defined
Date Mon, 02 Nov 2009 00:34:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-552?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12772394#action_12772394

Adam Kocoloski commented on COUCHDB-552:
----------------------------------------

Hi Christopher, this should already be fixed in trunk.  If you're building from source can
you svn up and try again?

I didn't backport the fix to the 0.10 branch.  If folks think the bug is serious enough we
can certainly include the fix in 0.10.1.

> When returning headers from an external process, the behavior depends on capitalization,
and is radically different in each case.
> Consider the external process return
> a: { "code":200, "json": { "hello":"world" }, "headers": {} }.
> If returned as (a), the server serves { "hello":"world" } with header "Content-Type:
application/json".
> If the json is modified to 
> b: { "code":200, "json": { "hello":"world" }, "headers":  {"Content-type":"text/plain"}
}
> c: { "code":200, "json": { "hello":"world" }, "headers":  {"content-type":"text/plain"}
}
> If returned as (b) or (c), the server serves { "hello":"world" } with header "Content-Type:
text/plain, application/json".
> If the json is modified to
> d: c: { "code":200, "json": { "hello":"world" }, "headers":  {"Content-Type":"text/plain"}
}
> If returned as (d), the server serves { "hello":"world" } with header "Content-Type:
text/plain".
> There should be one well defined behavior when a "content-type" header is returned from
an external process.
> To reproduce this error, setup an external process and return json strings as specified
above.
