Error description

  • An HTTP message with custom headers is
    received:
    
    HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    Content-Type: text/xml
    Transfer-Encoding: chunked
    
    A business process (BP) is run upon receipt that includes an
    HTTP Response Service that has an assign statement for
    ""doc-has-headers" set to "true" so the same headers should be
    sent in the response.
    
    As a test, a headers.txt file was created that contains the
    above headers. The BP includes a Collect Header that has an
    assign to "filter" that points to the headers.txt file. A
    curl command is used to send those headers in a message to an
    HTTP server adpater configured with a specific URI set to
    trigger the BP.
    
    The format of the curl command is:
    curl --verbose --data-binary @headers.txt http://<IP address or
    URL>:<http server adapter port #>/<URI>
    
    If the header.txt file contains only the above four headers,
    then this works as expected, for example, the response
    contains those
    lines. If the content of the headers.txt file is modified to
    include a message body, but adds a blank line after the
    header, then a body on the following line, the headers in the
    response are instead:
    
    HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    Date: Thu, 02 Jan 2014 19:15:19 GMT
    Content-Type: text/xml
    Content-Length: 42
    
    The "Transfer-Encoding: chunked" is removed and
    "Content-Length" header is added instead.
