Questions:

I’m using java-http-client library and Apache Transport with it on client side and Rails on server side. From time to time a get error like this:

What should I do to avoid this?

How to&Answers:

I have an similar error because I used CountingInputStreamEntity that is a non-repeteable http client. The solution was to use BufferedHttpEntity which converted the non-repeteable to repeteable httpclient.

ParcelFileDescriptor fileDescriptor = this.getContentResolver().openFileDescriptor(uri, "r");
            InputStream in = this.getContentResolver().openInputStream(uri);

            CountingInputStreamEntity entity = new CountingInputStreamEntity(in, fileDescriptor.getStatSize());
            entity.setUploadListener(this);
            entity.setContentType("binary/octet-stream");
            entity.setChunked(true); 

            BufferedHttpEntity myEntity = null;
            try {
                myEntity = new BufferedHttpEntity(entity);
            } catch (IOException e) {
                // TODO Auto-generated catch block
                e.printStackTrace();
            }

            put.setEntity(myEntity);

Excuse me for my bad english

Answer:

I solved it as folllows:

MultipartEntityBuilder entityBuilder = MultipartEntityBuilder.create();
entityBuilder.setMode(HttpMultipartMode.BROWSER_COMPATIBLE);
ContentType contentType = ContentType.create("image/jpeg", Consts.ISO_8859_1);
entityBuilder.addBinaryBody(PARAM_ATTACHMENT, new File(filepath), contentType, StringUtils.getFileName(filepath));
