Subject RE: Bug(?) and suggested solution for chunked transfer-encoding POST request
Date Fri, 08 Nov 2002 17:18:07 GMT

The problem is that with some MIDP implementations, even if you set the content-length, the
implementation, or possibly some gateway, can change the request to chunked. I believe they
would do this in order to control the flow of data the mobile network. In our case this does,
in fact, happen. We can in this particular application, parse it ourselves, but this is not
always an option as you could be POSTing to some arbitrary URL. So, what to do?
