Last updated on JANUARY 31, 2017
Applies to:Oracle HTTP Server - Version 10.1.3.3.0 to 10.1.3.3.0 [Release AS10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This problem can occur on any platform.
- Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) 2.0 (10.1.3.3) is configured as a Reverse Proxy to forward requests to a backend server, which could be OC4J, WebLogic etc..
- OHS 2.0 is configured for SSL, for example:
Browser --> https --> OHS 2.0 --> http --> OC4J
- An application is deployed to OC4J which is used to upload files
- If access to the OHS is made via HTTPS, if the file is bigger than 8 KB, then it is not uploaded correctly
- If access to the OHS is made via HTTP, the file is uploaded correctly i.e:
Browser --> http --> OHS 2.0 --> http --> OC4J
- This problem could manifest itself with any large POSTs requests. A network sniff showing lost data will also indicate this problem
