Error description

  • There is a problem with the way the Apache Wink code parses
    the boundary value. The code should strip any leading and
    trailing double quotes from the boundary value, but does not,
    the following error might occur in this case:
    
    SRVE0068E: Uncaught exception created in one of the service
    methods of the servlet JAX-RS Servlet in application
    MyApp1.
    Exception created : java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException
    at java.lang.String.substring()
    at org.apache.wink.common.internal.providers.multipart
    .MultiPartParser.parseHeaders()
    at org.apache.wink.common.internal.providers.multipart
    .MultiPartParser.nextPart()
    
    
    Content-type: multipart/mixed; boundary="simple boundary"
    The boundary should be: --simple boundary
