ZF-2044: Zend_Rest_Client broken?


Zend_Rest_Client seems to be broken, or I might have misunderstood the way it works.


Create rest server using Zend_Rest_Server based on a class, exposing 1 method:

parrot($text), returning the input text

Then test calling method directly through url:


and using Zend_Rest_Client:

$rest = new Zend_Rest_Client($server); echo $rest->parrot('This is my string')->get();

2nd one fails.

I have attached client and server files to demonstrate the issue.


client file for test

server file for test

The bug still exists 6 months later in the version 1.5.

The lines 239 to 242 from the class Zend_Rest_Client seem to be the cause of the bug

In fact I do not see what these lines are supposed to do. Removing them fixes the bug.

Looks like issues ZF-2467, ZF-2215, ZF-2044 are all related to this problem.

Does it depend on ZF-4089, doesn't it?

I will be happy if you see and comment on ZF-2215.

Changing issues in preparation for the 1.7.0 release.
