I've been having a fairly strange problem using the
mx:HTTPService. I use a custom app to serve XML documents to my
Flex application, and everything works just fine ... until it
doesn't. Even though I can confirm that entire, complete XML
documents are being transmitted by my server app, occasionally the
HTTPService generates a fault, complaining that the document is not
well-formed. Examining the event in the debugger reveals that sure
enough, the XML has been truncated at some random point.
This failure happens fairly often, but not in any predictable
way. Retrying a request sometimes pulls in the exact same document
successfully, sometimes it fails again. This really doesn't seem
like a user error, since the documents do load successfully
sometimes but not others.
If this is a HTTPService related issue it should also
reproduce on other platforms. Just to figure if this is a Linux
player issue can you check if this issue reproduces on a Win or Mac
From the issue it seems that all you would need to do is run
the Flex app on the other platform, right?
Finding a Windows machine has been difficult. I finally found
one guy who had one, and the app ran OK on his machine, but that
was a production 188.8.131.52 player in IE on Windows, and I am finding
the problem on a box with a debug 9.0.115 player in Firefox on
I'll try to change just one variable at a time, but I won't
be able to until after the holidays.
