[TIMOB-1649] Android: HTTPClient.send with no Argument causes NPE

Treat no argument as send({});. See http://developer.appcelerator.com/helpdesk/view/38031">Helpdesk 38031

To work around simply use an empty dictionary. http.send({});

Simple fail case app.js:

var http = Ti.Network.createHTTPClient();
http.onerror = function(e) {
Ti.API.info('after send call');

In the console you will see an error notice of a NullPointerException

    Hmm, I am running into a case where this workaround doesn't avoid the NPE. (I'm the original reporter from Helpdesk 38031). I'll try to isolate it further, but it is a simple POST.

    Confirmed that it's the same bug. If I build from source with the guard commented out, it works fine.

    Raising the priority.

    passed regression tested against android 1.6 sim

    Matt are you running against more than one sim? If not once you've verified it fixed, please move it into the resolved state when you comment.

    Thanks for tackling these, it's a big help.

  7. Matt Schmulen 2011-04-15

    Yes, I will run it against 1.6 then 2.1 and then move it to fixed state; unfortunately once a sim is up its a pain to restart it so I have to walk the list with 1.6 and then go back and do them again against 2.1. In the past I have run multiple sims at a time, but my new machine doesn't seem to have the power to handle it. If you thing of a better way let me know.

    passed regression tested against android 2.1 sim.
