View Full Version : Upload files bigger than available memory

Can someone please explain to me how to upload files which are bigger than available memory?
I looked at every example and they all load complete files with readAll() and then send them.
This is not an option for me on S60 platform coz I hit Out-of-memory error.
I tried to do it with QNetworkAccessManager:: post() method and I failed.
Now, I'm trying to use QTcpSocket, but I don't know how to send and format the header before sending content??
I attached a part of my code:


tcpSocket = new QTcpSocket();

QString param = "upload.txt";

QNetworkAccessManager *http_upload = new QNetworkAccessManager(this);
QNetworkRequest requpl;

QString toDropboxDir = metadata.value("path");
if (!toDropboxDir.isEmpty())
{
toDropboxDir = toDropboxDir.right(toDropboxDir.size()-1);
}

std::string stuff_std = OAuthWebRequestUpload("http://api-content.dropbox.com/0/files/dropbox/"+toDropboxDir.toStdString(),"POST",consumerKey,consumerSecret,token,secret,"",param.toStdString());
QString stuff = QString::fromStdString(stuff_std);
QByteArray stuff_BA;
stuff_BA = stuff.toAscii();

qsrand(QDateTime::currentDateTime().toTime_t());
QString boundary_random = QVariant(qrand()).toString()+QVariant(qrand()).toS tring()+QVariant(qrand()).toString();
QString crlf("\r\n");
QString boundaryStr("---------------------------"+boundary_random);
QString boundary="--"+boundaryStr+crlf;

tcpSocket->connectToHost("api-content.dropbox.com",80);
connect(tcpSocket, SIGNAL(connected()), this, SLOT(filler()));
connect(tcpSocket, SIGNAL(error(QAbstractSocket::SocketError)), this, SLOT(erase_multipartform()));

//setting header to the request (with neccessary OAuth authorization)
requpl.setUrl(QUrl(QString("http://api-content.dropbox.com/0/files/dropbox/"+metadata.value("path"))+"?file="+param));
requpl.setRawHeader("Authorization", stuff_BA);
requpl.setHeader(QNetworkRequest::ContentTypeHeade r, "multipart/form-data; boundary="+boundaryStr);
QFile *file_upload = new QFile(param_path);
file_upload->open(QIODevice::ReadOnly);

//sending content
QByteArray payload;
QDataStream stream(&payload, QIODevice::WriteOnly);
stream.setVersion(QDataStream::Qt_4_7);
stream << "Authorization "+stuff;
qDebug() << "Authorization "+stuff;
stream << "--"+boundaryStr << "\r\n";
//qDebug() << "--"+boundaryStr << "\r\n";
stream << "Content-Disposition: form-data; name=\"file\"; filename=\""+param+"\"" << "\r\n";
//qDebug() << "Content-Disposition: form-data; name=\"file\"; filename=\""+param+"\"" << "\r\n";
stream << "Content-Type: text/plain" << "\r\n" << "\r\n";
//qDebug() << "Content-Type: "+param_mime << "\r\n" << "\r\n";

int iBlock = 0;
while(!file_upload->atEnd())
{
qDebug()<<"Reading Line: "<<++iBlock;
//stream << (quint16)0;
//stream << file_upload->readLine().data();
stream << file_upload->readAll().data();
tcpSocket->write(payload);
tcpSocket->flush();
//qDebug() << QString(file_upload->readAll().constData());
payload.clear();

}
file_upload->close();
stream << "\r\n" << "--"+boundaryStr+"--" << "\r\n";
//qDebug() << "\r\n" << "--"+boundaryStr+"--" << "\r\n";
reply_upload = http_upload->post(requpl,payload);
connect(reply_upload, SIGNAL(finished()), this, SLOT(readData_upload()));


Please help me, I'm stuck on this for days now... :(

Did you try the QNetworkAccessManager::post() that takes a QIODevice as a parameter?

Hi, thanks for answering.
Yes I tried it with that method but then I can't load the boundarys like that and that implies (if I understand the docs properly) that the file still loads up entirely which is fine for small files but not for the large ones.

I rewrote my code, went low level on this one and learned a lot. But it's still not working, somehow something is either wrong with my generated POST form or the TCP socket is not connected properly.
Take a look and tell me what I'm missing out:


//TESTING PARAMETERS START
QString param = "upload.txt";
//QString param = "Zastitaokolisa.rar";

QString param_mime = "text/plain";
//QString param_mime = "application/x-rar-compressed";

QString param_path = "E://Dropian//"+param;
//QString param_path = "E://"+param;
//TESTING PARAMETERS END

//SETUP TCPSOCKET AND DATA
QString toDropboxDir = metadata.value("path");
if (!toDropboxDir.isEmpty())
{
toDropboxDir = toDropboxDir.right(toDropboxDir.size()-1);
}

std::string stuff_std = OAuthWebRequestUpload("http://api- content.dropbox.com/0/files/dropbox/"+toDropboxDir.toStdString(),"POST",consumerKey,consumerSecret,token,secret,"",param.toStdString());
QString stuff = QString::fromStdString(stuff_std);
QByteArray stuff_BA;
stuff_BA = stuff.toAscii();

qsrand(QDateTime::currentDateTime().toTime_t());
QString boundary_random = QVariant(qrand()).toString()+QVariant(qrand()).toS tring()+QVariant(qrand()).toString();
QString crlf("\r\n");
QString boundaryStr("---------------------------"+boundary_random);
QString boundary="--"+boundaryStr+crlf;

tcpSocket = new QTcpSocket();

tcpSocket->connectToHost("api-content.dropbox.com",80);
connect(tcpSocket, SIGNAL(connected()), this, SLOT(filler()));
connect(tcpSocket, SIGNAL(error(QAbstractSocket::SocketError)), this, SLOT(erase_multipartform()));


QFile *file_upload = new QFile(param_path);
file_upload->open(QIODevice::ReadOnly);

QString header;
header += "POST /0/files/dropbox/"+metadata.value("path")+" HTTP/1.1\r\n";
header += "Host: api-content.dropbox.com\r\n";
header += "Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary="+boundaryStr+"\r\n";
header += "Authorization: "+stuff+"\r\n\r\n";

QString content;
content += "--"+boundaryStr+"\r\n";
content += "Content-Disposition: form-data; name=\"file\"; filename=\""+param+"\"\r\n";
content += "Content-Type: "+param_mime+"\r\n\r\n";

QString end;
end += "\r\n--"+boundaryStr+"--\r\n";

QByteArray payload;
QDataStream stream(&payload, QIODevice::WriteOnly);
stream.setVersion(QDataStream::Qt_4_7);

//HEADER STREAM START
stream << header;
qDebug() << header;
//tcpSocket->waitForConnected(30000);
tcpSocket->write(payload);
tcpSocket->flush();
payload.clear();
header.clear();
//HEADER STREAM END

//CONTENT STREAM START
stream << content;
qDebug() << content;
//tcpSocket->waitForConnected(30000);
tcpSocket->write(payload);
tcpSocket->flush();
payload.clear();
content.clear();

//UPLOADING FILE START
int iBlock = 0;
while(!file_upload->atEnd())
{
qDebug()<<"Reading Line: "<<++iBlock;
//stream << (quint16)0;
stream << file_upload->readLine().data();
//stream << file_upload->readAll().data();
//tcpSocket->waitForConnected(30000);
tcpSocket->write(payload);
tcpSocket->flush();
//qDebug() << QString(file_upload->readLine().constData());
//stream.device()->seek(0);
//stream << (quint16)(payload.size()-sizeof(quint16));
payload.clear();

}
file_upload->close();
//UPLOADING FILE END

stream << end;
qDebug() << end;
//tcpSocket->waitForConnected(30000);
tcpSocket->write(payload);
tcpSocket->flush();
payload.clear();
end.clear();
//CONTENT STREAM END

//tcpSocket->waitForConnected(30000);
tcpSocket->disconnect();


And here is the POST form it generates:


POST /0/files/dropbox/ HTTP/1.1
Host: api-content.dropbox.com
Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=---------------------------63101371611732759261053641528
Authorization: OAuth file=upload.txt,oauth_consumer_key=1234567890abcde f,oauth_nonce=Kqm88U9yhT7XfeL0,oauth_signature=WTX VsyETru0GR%2BiK5ZxW9MNuGG8%3D,oauth_signature_meth od=HMAC-SHA1,oauth_timestamp=1292846464,oauth_token=123456 7890abcdef,oauth_version=1.0

-----------------------------63101371611732759261053641528
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="file"; filename="upload.txt"
Content-Type: text/plain

Hello world!

-----------------------------63101371611732759261053641528--



I admit, I'm a n00b at QTcpSocket so don't laugh too hard at this. :D
Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi all,

did you ever find a solution to this problem?
