Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-5517) Return HTTP error on POST requests with no Content-Type
Date Tue, 02 Sep 2014 06:26:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-5517?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14117934#comment-14117934

Dominik Geelen commented on SOLR-5517:
--------------------------------------

Hi,

this update seems to have broken the automatic mime-type detection of the ExtractingRequestHandler
(Tika), which needs you to sumbit an empty (or simply none at all) content-type with your
request, to trigger the detection. Even the Solr-WIKI states that explicitly specifying a
content-type (stream.type) is optional, so this cannot be the intended behavior of this patch.
This completely broke the indexing application in our company, which heavily relies on the
auto-detect feature for document indexing, and we need a workaround for this bug as soon as
possible.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do until this has been fixed?

Regards,
Dominik

> While the http spec states requests without a content-type should be treated as application/octet-stream,
the html spec says instead that post requests without a content-type should be treated as
a form (http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/html-spec/html-spec_8.html#SEC8.2.1).  It would be nice to
allow large search requests from html forms, and not have to rely on the browser to set the
content type (since the spec says it doesn't have to).
