Request body not a json exception from REST DIspatcher in TIBCO

Hi Team,

I am working on a project where, we are facing issue with REST dispatcher pallete. I am hitting the POST operation with one path parameter and one query parameter through REST client/SOAP UI. the Content type in Request header is 'application/json',I get Request body not a json format error. We do not have any requirement to passPOST data though. Please find below detail to analyze the issue. If I send '{}' as Post data the below POST method works. But as per our farmework and requrement its not good practice to send empty json format or any json data.

Let me know if anyone faced same issue before!!

Exception from REST Dispatcher pallete.:





Request Media Type[application/json] Error! Request Body is not JSON format.


HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request






HTTP Receiver input :









POST /salesrequests/businessloans/859056a624cbdab233a43c5ad5bb0041ProcessId HTTP/1.1content-length: 0

host: localhost:48155

content-type: application/json

Hi I am having similar problem, for my case I am doing a DB insert and data got inserted while response of the rest call saying below Error:

{"ErrorMessage": "Request Media Type[application/json] Error or Server setting Error for Content-Type! Actually it is not JSON Data"}:

I wrote a client from tibco BW, converting my Post input to Json using Render JSON palette. for my case Http receiver input is #
















PUT /CriticalFlights HTTP/1.1content-type: application/json

connection: keep-alive

host: localhost:8085

param: application/json

content-length: 104

accept: application/json

user-agent: Java/1.7.0_09

accept-encoding: gzip

















and REST Dispatch and Reply is throwing a response #







{"ErrorMessage": "Request Media Type[application/json] Error or Server setting Error for Content-Type! Actually it is not JSON Data"}


HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request





do anyone have any solution for this, I tried different things but not able to get a success response.

Thanks in advance.

I also have the same issue.The local code is working fine. However I found the Request Media errror in the server version.I have compared the process in the ear with the souce code. It's nearly same.Not quite sure why I get this error.Please kindly give me a advice if anyone knows how to fix this issue.
