    Air HTTPService Stream Error #2032

    fuyuko1979 Level 1

      Hi there,


      I am currently creating an Air app which loads 1 or more xml on creation complete.

      So what it does is, it searches for xml files in a given folder by looping over the contents in this folder, if it's an xml then it loads it using HTTPService, it then retrieves the xml data then moves the xml file to another folder, this repeats until all xml files have been loaded.


      This is all working fine except sometimes not all xml files get loaded and I encounter the #2032 error, is this because I am loading multiple xml files one after the other in a loop?

      This does not seem to happen if there is only one xml but two or more starts to get a bit temperamental.


      Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you,

             why dont you move all of the xml's to your destination directory first and then load all of the xml's in to your App one by one synchronously.

            hi there, thanks for your reply, what I am making is a little application which sits in a folder and every hour it looks for new xml files within that folder - this means it has no prior knowledge of how many xml files there may be or what their names are.

            These xml files get send from a remote location by ftp and once my app detects the file(s) it then loads each one, extracts the data and then saves it in to a database. Once the data is saved then the file gets moved to a directory called "Processed" so it means that I can't move the xml file until the data gets saved to a database.

            There will be times where there may be more than one xml files in this folder, and that is why I set up a loop at creation complete to loop over all xml files and then to load each one at a time..... is this not synchronously loading?


            The whole process is moving as far as I can see, it's just that the loading of the xml's does not happen every single time....

              hi there, I figured it out, I had defined a local httpService object in my method, I changed this to define it as a private var at the top of  my script and now everything works fine.

                    Could you post the code that you use to load  and parse the xml?

                      Hi there, thanks for your reply.  ok here is the code, when I instantiated the HTTPService object at the top as a private var it works 100% BUT now for some reason it tries to open the same xml three times for all three files! the first time it works, but the second and third time it errors(obviously!).

                      The code in red is the older code which I thought would be the way to do this but almost 50% of the time one of the files does not get loaded and instead gives me the dreaded #2032 error.....

                        ok, i've answered my own question.

                        It was a timing issue where the application was doing too many things at one time causing occassional stream errors.

                        Fixed the issue by making the application strictly linear.
