Subject Re: Adding Transfer Encoding header if not present
Date Thu, 16 Sep 2010 15:12:59 GMT

Thanks a lot Mark and Andre for your replies.
As per my requirement I want to add Transfer-Encoding in the client request
header and send request to servlet for priniting the headers there. For one
way, I am doing with Apache http server using mod_jk with mod_headers

<IfModule mod_headers.c>
<Location /my-example>
RequestHeader append Transfer-Encoding "chunked"

Here for testing purpose, If I print request.getHeader("transfer-encoding")
in systemout, it comes as "chunked". But I am getting this error in the

The requested resource
does not allow request data with GET requests, or the amount of data
provided in the request exceeds the capacity limit."

Any help will be appreciated.
