    Unhappy HTTP symbian example - post not working

    Hi I have compiled HTTP symbian example app for S60 3rd edition.
    I have no problems with get requests (I can send them and they reach server) but when I am trying to send POST reguest I am getting
    Error - 7334 (that means empty body)

    but actually I am filing the body
    I invoke function from symbian HTTP example in this manner:

    <code> iClient->IssueHTTPPostL(someAdrressThatIsOK,_L8("text/plain"),_L8("someparameter1=lala"));

    Am I doing sth wrong here ? Does anyone has a working example of HTTP post ??

    The IssueHTTPPostL function from the symbian examples looks like this:

    void CWebClientEngine::IssueHTTPPostL(const TDesC8& aUri,
    const TDesC8& aContentType,
    const TDesC8& aBody)
    // Parse string to URI
    TUriParser8 uri;

    // Copy data to be posted into member variable; iPostData is used later in
    // methods inherited from MHTTPDataSupplier.
    delete iPostData;
    iPostData = aBody.AllocL();

    // Get request method string for HTTP POST
    RStringF method = iSession.StringPool().StringF(HTTP::EPOST,

    // Open transaction with previous method and parsed uri. This class will
    // receive transaction events in MHFRunL and MHFRunError.
    iTransaction = iSession.OpenTransactionL(uri, *this, method);

    // Set headers for request; user agent, accepted content type and body's
    // content type.
    RHTTPHeaders hdr = iTransaction.Request().GetHeaderCollection();
    SetHeaderL(hdr, HTTP::EUserAgent, KUserAgent);
    SetHeaderL(hdr, HTTP::EAccept, KAccept);
    SetHeaderL(hdr, HTTP::EContentType, aContentType);

    // Set this class as an data supplier. Inherited MHTTPDataSupplier methods
    // are called when framework needs to send body data.

    MHTTPDataSupplier* dataSupplier = this;
    // Submit the transaction. After this the framework will give transaction
    // events via MHFRunL and MHFRunError.

    iRunning = ETrue;
    _LIT(KConnecting,"Connecting post...");

    Re: HTTP symbian example - post not working

    Hi tomasz.florczak,

    The exampleclient at EPOCROOT\Examples\AppProts\exampleclient is working in both the cases GET/POST.

    In case of POST we have to set the content type to application/x-www-form-urlencoded see SDK documentation http://www.symbian.com/developer/tec...oderClass.html

    So, I think iClient->IssueHTTPPostL(someAdrressThatIsOK,_L8("application/x-www-form-urlencoded"),_L8("someparameter1=lala"));

    may also work.

    HttpConnection hc = null;
    InputStream in = null;
    OutputStream out = null;

    String message = "";
    String url = ""+input1.getString()+"&uname="+input2.getString()+"";
    hc = (HttpConnection)Connector.open(url);
    out = hc.openOutputStream();
    in = hc.openInputStream();
    int length = (int)hc.getLength();
    byte[] data = new byte[length];
    String response = new String(data);
    StringItem stringItem = new StringItem(null, response);
    catch (IOException ioe) {
    StringItem stringItem = new StringItem(null, ioe.toString());
    finally {
    try {
    if (out != null) out.close();
    if (in != null) in.close();
