Default HttpConnection Issue - MLBTracker

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

Something mysteriously broke in my MLBTracker app and I'm stuck trying to fix it. Sometime recently the URL I connect to changed the data being returned (as I can see from wget). Basically a lot of newline characters were added to the beginning of the response stream.

Now via the BB and from the simulator, I can see that the URL only returns 12 \n (newline) chars and then the stream ends. Even though I know if I do a wget on the same URL I get a lot of data after the newline chars.

Any ideas?

I'm not sure if its the issue but I noticed that the response itself is coming with a transfer-encoding of chunked. Does the blackberry HttpConnection / InputStream handle the chunked transfer encodings?

Quick Update:

I was able to fix the original issue by adding:

c.setRequestProperty("User-Agent","BlackBerry8320/4.2.2");

To my connection.

However now I'm finding that when connecting using BES I get lots of binary chars where when I use the WAP gateway settings things work ok... Any ideas?

Hi fsa3,

Do you know if BlackBerry's HttpConnection support "transfer-encoding: Chunked" header? When I set the header, it seems to me "Content-lenght" header always internally added.
