Attachments are not replicated to CouchDB from Couchbase Lite 1.2.0/1.2.1


#1

Hi,

I’m trying to add attachment in Couchbase Lite to a database and replicate it to CouchDB, but it fails. CouchDB says invallid_json with reason garbage_after_value that seems to be true. Here is the log from CouchDB:

My CouchDB version 1.6.0.
I reproduced the issue with Couchbase Lite 1.2.0 and 1.2.1. Than I returned back to version 1.1.0 and the issue is gone.

What platform? We have three different implementations of Couchbase Lite.

Looks like the JSON is
{\"rev\":\"2-b1314c55c2ab85a685a6bb7fecfe07c3\",\"layerid\":\"1467641162861_0cc68d42-36e9-4c38-87e7-327442747555\",\"attachments\":{\"image\":{\"digest\":\"sha1-H/xAix2xpGGRmEoHGhf+uqzoZww=\",\"length\":3118398,\"follows\":true,\"revpos\":2,\"contenttype\":\"image\"}},\"height\":\"4032\",\"width\":\"3024\",\"revisions\":{\"start\":2,\"ids\":[\"b1314c55c2ab85a685a6bb7fecfe07c3\",\"74d53f450e539e5f675c0ee883dd67db\"]},\"id\":\"1467641162858_37cb750b-aaeb-4562-a47c-10ec255a83da\"}\r\n1096\r\n

The \r\n1096\r\n looks like HTTP chunked-mode encoding, and the request headers do include Transfer-Encoding: chunked. I recall that CouchDB has trouble with chunked encoding in some circumstances.

Sorry, it’s Android.


#4

@hideki, are there any known compatibility issues with the multipart code in Java?


#5

I looked through the Cocoa source and found a reference to the CouchDB bug: COUCHDB-1403. It’s marked as closed, but just because it got duplicated to another bug, COUCHDB-1956. That other bug is still open, so the problem has not been fixed … four years after I reported it. :-p

PS: The reference is at CBLMultipartUploader.m:45. The code there makes sure the content length is known, and sets an explicit Content-Length header so the HTTP encoder won’t switch to chunked mode.
