HTTP Upload problem



I have a problem uploading files to the server. I used this article for making download code working:How To - Download large files using the BlackBerry Mobile Data System


The problem is with the file upload. I don't know how to make it work, what headers I should send to server ?


I tried to send "Range" header with a size of the packet, the server has responded with 206 for the first packet but failed with error 416 for next packets, so I am doing something wrong, but I can't find any information anywhere, how it should be done properly.


Please help.

Re: HTTP Upload problem

416 says  Requested Range Not Satisfiable.

What did you exaclty set?


My guess:

I would assume that because upload is the other way around, you probably have to set Content-Range not Range!

Check HTTP documentation:

Re: HTTP Upload problem


Thanks for reply, I tried setting both, Range, Content-Rage even Content-Length. Tried all the possible combinations, so I am lost now.


with Content-Range I tried to send data exactly as it is written in specification, here is from the code:


 c.setRequestProperty( "Content-Range" , "bytes " + rangeStart + "-" + rangeEnd + "/" + String.valueOf( fileSize ) );


which gives:


bytes 0-32767/211207


-> server responds with 200


bytes  32768-65535/211207


-> server responds with 200


bytes 65536-98303/211207


-> server responds with 200


bytes 98304-131071/211207


-> server responds with 200


bytes 131072-16389/211207


-> server responds with 200


bytes 163840-196607/211207


-> server responds with 200


bytes 196608-211206/211207


-> server responds with 200




But when I check the file on the server, only the last portion of it was upload - last 14Kb's


So what I am doing wrong here ?
