The old http-module when you send an http-request, specifying a non textual mime-type, the current http-client invokes the serializer specifiying the (unaccessible from XQuery code) "binary" method.
If the body is an xml node it gets converted in a very strange way: <hello>there</hello> becomes "hello there" then it is encoded as base64 and sent encoded. There is a test which specifically verifies this case. Trying to send a JSON object results in an error. A base64 value is sent encoded as is. Anything else is first converted into a string and then encoded in base64. I personally believe that this does not make sense at all and the JSON http client behaves differently. Is this really the intended behaviour (there is a test which verifies it)? Is there some code depending on it? What is the rationale of the conversion from <hello>there</hello> to "hello there" (it cannot even be reproduced without a UDF)? Should I reproduce this behaviour? -- https://code.launchpad.net/~zorba-coders/zorba/json-http-module/+merge/169579 Your team Zorba Coders is subscribed to branch lp:zorba. -- Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~zorba-coders Post to : email@example.com Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~zorba-coders More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
