Dropped AJAX connections strangly report success
|Reported by:||harningt||Owned by:|
I was debugging some issues to do w/ proxies causing problems in our AJAX code and found that some strange behavior was exhibited when web connections are abruptly dropped.
Note: Tested on Firefox, haven't tried IE. The Ajax Proxy here was used to test dropped connections... http://sourceforge.net/projects/jpspan/
Ex: Ajax request begins
- connection dropped
status == 200 responseText == ""
The one thing that is different in that than a blank page is that there are no HTTP headers available.
There should probably be workaround inside the AJAX module for this situation (so that some sort of error is reported or the request retried...).
