View Full Version : [Solved] - Form submission fails when using HTTPS

11 Jan 2012, 2:55 PM

I'm testing sencha touch to write a web application for iOS and Android mobiles. The web server where the application is deployed runs under tomcat 6 with HTTPS protocol activated.

So i'm encountering a very special problem on my iPhone 4 : when a form is submitted via https everything works fine. But if I close Safari and open it again, the form submission will fail and always return a http status code 0.

If I want to submit the form again, I have to clean Safari's cache.

The same operation done but using http protocol won't cause any problem. I can quit and relaunch Safari without any problem.

I made complementary tests using Chrome and Safari. Both work fine when using https protocol.

It seems that https network cause Safari mobile and/or sencha crash ...

Has someone encountered a similar problem ? Have you any idea ?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards.

I'm using sencha touch Ext.form.FormPanel with ajax submission.

The submit is trigerred by the submit method : myform.submit({method:'POST'});

Thanks for your answer

I looked a bit why form submission didn't work when safari is relaunched. It's very strange : when the form is submitted, some TCP packets are exchanged between iPhone and Tomcat. But these packets don't trigger any action on tomcat ...

I finally found a workaround. I construct the Sencha form with attribute standardSubmit=true. The submition is then succesfull on http and https protocol even when safari is relaunched.

Thanks for your help.
