Hullo,
  while trying to create a calendar event by using a small java-developed HTTP client, I am getting the following exception:

I am using 3.0.0, and was wondering

  • if this can depend on the way I am doing my request

  • if this has happened to anyone else (and maybe is fixed in a later release)
My client code is pretty plain so I am not sure it is really useful to debug this, but here is the relevant method (might be useful to toher people too…):

   public static void test2() {

      HttpClient client = new HttpClient();
      client.getParams().setParameter("http.useragent", "Test Client");
      client.getState().setCredentials(AuthScope.ANY,
            new UsernamePasswordCredentials("user", "pass"));

      BufferedReader br = null;
      PostMethod method = new PostMethod("http://<alfresco-url>/alfresco/service/calendar/create");

      List<NameValuePair> nvps = new ArrayList<NameValuePair>();
      nvps.add(new NameValuePair("username", "username"));
      nvps.add(new NameValuePair("password", "password"));
      nvps.add(new NameValuePair("what", "CICCIO"));
      nvps.add(new NameValuePair("where", "IRCC"));
      nvps.add(new NameValuePair("desc", "DESC"));
      nvps.add(new NameValuePair("from", "2009-09-24"));
      nvps.add(new NameValuePair("start", "12:00"));
      nvps.add(new NameValuePair("to", "2009-09-24"));
      nvps.add(new NameValuePair("end", "13:00"));
      nvps.add(new NameValuePair("site", "SP2"));
      NameValuePair[] array = new NameValuePair[nvps.size()];
      method.setRequestBody(nvps.toArray(array));
      method.setDoAuthentication(true);

      try {
         int returnCode = client.executeMethod(method);
         if (returnCode == HttpStatus.SC_NOT_IMPLEMENTED) {
            System.err.println("The Post method is not implemented by this URI");
            // still consume the response body
            method.getResponseBodyAsString();
         } else {
            br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(method.getResponseBodyAsStream()));
            String readLine;
            while (((readLine = br.readLine()) != null)) {
               System.err.println(readLine);
            }
         }
      } catch (Exception e) {
         System.err.println(e);
      } finally {
         method.releaseConnection();
         if (br != null)
            try {
               br.close();
            } catch (Exception fe) {
            }
      }
   }

TIA,
