Hi All,

Thanks Ailleen for you proposal, but I still have the same problem as Roland
with the same case :
chunk data and chunk size are both Null.

Opposite to this, Appache log and my log files tell me that the POST method
ended with 200 (OK) HTTP Status and that data size in the HTTP  stream match
what I expected.

Where are the data gone ?

BTW, is that correct that the format has to be text/xml ?

thanks a lot for further ideas

Franšois.
