Reported by Julien | October 26th, 2010 @ 08:52 AM | in 1.2.0


I'm using createHTTPClient to POST to a page. I receive a 302. Titanium seems to follow through the 302 with another POST, not a GET.

Any idea why it's that way ? Is it a bug ?


I'm filing this ticket for Julien as it was in Desktop, and it is a Mobile issue which still exists on the 1.5.1 Mobile SDK.

Julien did test and verify it on the 1.5.1 SDK for me. I'm assigning this to Marshall, but feel free to move to anyone else.

    Hi Alan,

    I was unable to reproduce the problem your describing on Mobile SDK. When I submit a POST request to a test page that returns a 302 redirect the new request is sent as a GET request according to the environment variables the test page displays.

    Can you please provide further details and ideally a test app?

    This issue occurs for me on iPhone, I haven't tested it on Android. I've included :

    • A PHP script that will trigger the redirect
    • The Titanium application (basically just a button that send the request). You have to modify the source to point to the PHP script
    • Screenshot of what happens on Firefox (via Firebug) : a POST followed by a GET
    • Screenshot of what happens on iPhone (via Charles) : multiple POST

    Updating tags and assign it to Ralf.

    This seems iPhone only, per description.

    Assigning to Steve to see if we can plan for R1.6.0.
