    [JAVASERVERFACES-3765] FileRenderer decode fails on non multipart/form-data Ajax request - Java.net JIRA

    java.net | 8 months ago
    javax.servlet.ServletException: org.apache.tomcat.util.http.fileupload.FileUploadBase$InvalidContentTypeException: the request doesn't contain a multipart/form-data or multipart/mixed stream, content type header is application/x-www-form-urlencoded;charset=UTF-8

    {{com.sun.faces.renderkit.html_basic.FileRenderer.decode(FacesContext, UIComponent)}} fails if the content-type of the HTTP request is not ''multipart/form-data" and if the request does not submit a file. This is at least true for Tomcat, see stack trace below. The issue pops up when the form contains the {{h:inputFile}} along with some Ajax-enabled component, when no file has been selected and the Ajax request is with {{execute="@form"}}. In that case, the {{HtmlInputFile}} is decoded, but the submitted Ajax request is not a multipart (and contains no Part). I guess the solution would be to check if the submitted content type is multipart. PrimeFaces' file upload does this in its {{decode()}}: {{if(!context.getExternalContext().getRequestContentType().toLowerCase().startsWith("multipart/")) return;}} Feb 10, 2015 4:45:12 PM com.sun.faces.context.AjaxExceptionHandlerImpl handlePartialResponseError Schwerwiegend: javax.servlet.ServletException: org.apache.tomcat.util.http.fileupload.FileUploadBase$InvalidContentTypeException: the request doesn't contain a multipart/form-data or multipart/mixed stream, content type header is application/x-www-form-urlencoded;charset=UTF-8 at org.apache.catalina.connector.Request.parseParts(Request.java:2801) at org.apache.catalina.connector.Request.getParts(Request.java:2655) at org.apache.catalina.connector.RequestFacade.getParts(RequestFacade.java:1075) at com.sun.faces.renderkit.html_basic.FileRenderer.decode(FileRenderer.java:91) at javax.faces.component.UIComponentBase.decode(UIComponentBase.java:831) at javax.faces.component.UIInput.decode(UIInput.java:771) at javax.faces.component.UIComponentBase.processDecodes(UIComponentBase.java:1226) at javax.faces.component.UIInput.processDecodes(UIInput.java:676) at javax.faces.component.UIForm.processDecodes(UIForm.java:225) at com.sun.faces.context.PartialViewContextImpl$PhaseAwareVisitCallback.visit(PartialViewContextImpl.java:573) at com.sun.faces.component.visit.PartialVisitContext.invokeVisitCallback(PartialVisitContext.java:183) at javax.faces.component.UIComponent.visitTree(UIComponent.java:1689) at javax.faces.component.UIForm.visitTree(UIForm.java:371) at javax.faces.component.UIComponent.visitTree(UIComponent.java:1700) at javax.faces.component.UIComponent.visitTree(UIComponent.java:1700) at com.sun.faces.context.PartialViewContextImpl.processComponents(PartialViewContextImpl.java:403) at com.sun.faces.context.PartialViewContextImpl.processPartial(PartialViewContextImpl.java:266) at javax.faces.component.UIViewRoot.processDecodes(UIViewRoot.java:927) at com.sun.faces.lifecycle.ApplyRequestValuesPhase.execute(ApplyRequestValuesPhase.java:78) at com.sun.faces.lifecycle.Phase.doPhase(Phase.java:101) at com.sun.faces.lifecycle.LifecycleImpl.execute(LifecycleImpl.java:198) at javax.faces.webapp.FacesServlet.service(FacesServlet.java:646) at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.internalDoFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:303) at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.doFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:208) at org.apache.tomcat.websocket.server.WsFilter.doFilter(WsFilter.java:52) at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.internalDoFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:241) at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.doFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:208) at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardWrapperValve.invoke(StandardWrapperValve.java:220) at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContextValve.invoke(StandardContextValve.java:122) at org.apache.catalina.authenticator.AuthenticatorBase.invoke(AuthenticatorBase.java:503) at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardHostValve.invoke(StandardHostValve.java:170) at org.apache.catalina.valves.ErrorReportValve.invoke(ErrorReportValve.java:103) at org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve.invoke(AccessLogValve.java:950) at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardEngineValve.invoke(StandardEngineValve.java:116) at org.apache.catalina.connector.CoyoteAdapter.service(CoyoteAdapter.java:421) at org.apache.coyote.http11.AbstractHttp11Processor.process(AbstractHttp11Processor.java:1070) at org.apache.coyote.AbstractProtocol$AbstractConnectionHandler.process(AbstractProtocol.java:611) at org.apache.tomcat.util.net.JIoEndpoint$SocketProcessor.run(JIoEndpoint.java:316) at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.runWorker(ThreadPoolExecutor.java:1145) at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$Worker.run(ThreadPoolExecutor.java:615) at org.apache.tomcat.util.threads.TaskThread$WrappingRunnable.run(TaskThread.java:61) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:745) Caused by: org.apache.tomcat.util.http.fileupload.FileUploadBase$InvalidContentTypeException: the request doesn't contain a multipart/form-data or multipart/mixed stream, content type header is application/x-www-form-urlencoded;charset=UTF-8 at org.apache.tomcat.util.http.fileupload.FileUploadBase$FileItemIteratorImpl.<init>(FileUploadBase.java:804) at org.apache.tomcat.util.http.fileupload.FileUploadBase.getItemIterator(FileUploadBase.java:259) at org.apache.tomcat.util.http.fileupload.FileUploadBase.parseRequest(FileUploadBase.java:283) at org.apache.catalina.connector.Request.parseParts(Request.java:2737) ... 41 more
