Description amsidev 2012-08-08 14:04:41 UTC
Using Monodevelop, MOno 2.10.9, MonoTouch 5.2.12

Submitting this report in reference to:

Basically, in the following code, as soon as the line req.GetRequestStream is hit, the Delete Web API on the server within the Session Controller is executed. And hence the additional data sent via jSON does not go through. Similar workflow for POST  or PUT works fine.

HttpWebRequest req = (HttpWebRequest)HttpWebRequest.Create("http://localhost/module/api/session/");
        req.ContentType = "application/json";
        req.CookieContainer = jar;
        req.Method = "Delete";
        using (var streamWrite = new StreamWriter(req.GetRequestStream()))
            string jSON = "{\"UserName\":\"" + "someone" + "\"}";
        HttpWebResponse res = (HttpWebResponse)req.GetResponse();

The same code works fine in a Visual Studio 2010 windows app.

This has already been fixed in Mono 2.10.10:

We need to backport this into Monotouch.
