file transfer problem

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for, but the session cookies don't get sent by flex/flash when you upload a file. I had to make a request before the file upload to get a unique upload id, store it the database and return it to flex. Then when I acually send up the file I tag it in the params of the upload.

I'm interested to know if anyone came up with a other workarounds for the problem?

For more recent versions of Rails (afaik 2.3 or higher):

If you’re using an older Rails version, you can check out a post I made quite a while ago:

Hey Percy,

This sounds like a really strange problem. I am thinking a little out of the box here, but this sounds like a classic clustering issue. One server within the cluster has a different code set or is not working correct. Hence you get this case of "it sometimes works and other times it doesn't". Double check that all your mongrel, or whatever you are running, have restarted properly and are running all the same code. I would highly doubt that this is problem with your flex code if you can upload the file properly, even if it is really small. Double check that file is not corrupt on the other end though. If you could replace your flex code with something else that can handle the same sort file transfer, that could isolate the problem.

The only other thing I could think of is a bug within the front end server which is handling the file transfer.

Good luck,
