Hi, i'm using this library https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/t...er-in-your-android-application.25984/#content.

Whenever i try to write bytes to the outpustream with this code:
B4X:
        Dim r As Reflector
        r.Target = Response
        Dim jo As JavaObject = r.GetField("res")
        Dim ser As B4XSerializator
            
        Dim out As OutputStream = jo.RunMethod("getOutputStream", Null)
        Dim data() As Byte = ser.ConvertObjectToBytes( Object )
        out.WriteBytes( data, 0, data.Length )

i get java.io.EOFException: Unexpected end of ZLIB input stream at client side.
B4X:
Sub JobDone ( j as httjob )
  if j.success then
          dim data() as byte = bit.inpustreamtobytes( j.getinpustream) '< '-- Error
 end if
End Sub

Is there something wrong ?
Thanks.

Dim out As OutputStream = jo.RunMethod("getOutputStream", Null)
Dim data() As Byte = ser.ConvertObjectToBytes( Object )
out.WriteBytes( data,
0, data.Length )
Are you closing the outputstream after you wrote to it?

Yes i did try that.
Can you post the full error message with the stack trace?

Log the size of you data array after serialization to make sure you’re sending anything

Do you accidentally write anything else to the stream before/after?

I don’t think that b4xserializator can do that. I think it’s only primitives, arrays, lists, types and maps. Arrays, list, types and maps can contain other arrays, list, types and maps.

Edit: it can also do strings (string is not a primitive). See slide on video at https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4x-network-asyncstreams-b4xserializator.72149/#content

You misunderstood my question.
it has nothing to do with b4serializator. I'm converting a map ( CreateMap("test": "test") to bytes and then trying to send it over to the outpustream.

You misunderstood my question.
Actually, I've overlooked the forum (B4A). I was thinking in terms of B4J. And yes, I also misunderstood what you are sending. So sort of ignore everything I've said so far.

Back on track. Instead of
B4X:
dim data() as byte = bit.inpustreamtobytes( j.getinpustream) '< '-- Error
do a
B4X:
Log(j.GetString)
Just to see if all you are getting is some binary data.

That should not matter (that you did not use sendstring)

Try this:
B4X:
Log(Job.Response.ContentLength)

Try this on the server side:
B4X:
out.WriteBytes( data, 0, data.Length )
out.Flush ' <- my guess is that it is not flushing the write. I'm guessing though

The flush may be the wrong thing to do. A hint from this post (https://stackoverflow.com/a/5045073) indicates that ContentLength should be greater than 0 in order for the underlying servlet to recognize that it is done and flush the output stream. So you may need:
B4X:
'
        Dim r As Reflector
        r.Target = Response
        Dim jo As JavaObject = r.GetField("res")
        Dim ser As B4XSerializator

        Dim out As OutputStream = jo.RunMethod("getOutputStream", Null)
        Dim data() As Byte = ser.ConvertObjectToBytes( Object )
        jo.RunMethod("setContentLength", Array(data.Length)) '<--- This may do the trick
        out.WriteBytes( data, 0, data.Length )

@OliverA
Well i have tried everything that you have posted with no success.
jo.RunMethod("setContentLength", Array(data.Length)) '<--- This may do the trick
Sadly it does not.

I even try to set the content type with Response.SetContentType("Application/octet-stream")
No success either.

What did
B4X:
Log(Job.Response.ContentLength)
produce on the client side?
