1.2.4RC2: Cant retrieve request.body after XHR upload when controller method has params

Reported by Vaclav Matouch | November 17th, 2011 @ 05:09 PM

Framework version: 1.2.4RC2
Platform you're using: Windows

Reproduction steps: select or drop file to upload, java.io.IOException: Read error is thrown

This works fine in 1.2.3, fails in 1.2.4RC2. When the upload method has no parameters, it works ok in both 1.2.3 and 1.2.4RC2.

public class Application extends Controller {

    public static void index() {
    public static void upload(String qqfile) {
        InputStream is = request.body;
        try {
        } catch (IOException e) {
            Logger.error(e, "upload error");
        renderJSON("{success: true}");

index.html (fileuploader is http://valums.com/ajax-upload/)

#{extends 'main.html' /}
#{set title:'Home' /}

#{set 'moreStyles'}
<link rel="stylesheet" media="screen" href="@{'/public/stylesheets/fileuploader.css'}">
#{set 'moreScripts'}
<script src="@{'/public/javascripts/fileuploader.js'}" type="text/javascript" charset="${_response_encoding}"></script>

<div id="file-uploader">
        <p>Please enable JavaScript to use file uploader.</p>
        <!-- or put a simple form for upload here -->

<script type="text/javascript">
    function createUploader() {
        var uploader = new qq.FileUploader({
            element : document.getElementById('file-uploader'),
            action : '@{Application.upload}'

    // in your app create uploader as soon as the DOM is ready
    // don't wait for the window to load  
    window.onload = createUploader;

    I have just tested this in the released 1.2.4 running on Linux and am not getting this IOException.

    Can someone who has a copy of Windows test this out and see if it works on the 1.2.4 release.
