Description Terje Bless 2002-10-25 18:16:04 UTC
Reported by Björn Höhrmann:

   I just hit the "Validate File..." button without entering something
into the form and got back:

  Sorry, this type of URI (undefined) is not supported by this service.
  Please check that you entered the URI correctly. 
  URIs should be in the form:
  If you entered a valid URI using a scheme that we should support,
  please let us know as outlined on our Feedback page. Make sure to
  include the specific URI you would like us to support, and if possible
  provide a reference to the relevant standards document describing the
  URI scheme in question. 

If I enter something into the "Address" field and click "Validate
File...", I get the same response, as well as when specifying a file and
clicking "Validate URI...".

To avoid collisions, I think it's best to leave this one alone until bug #3 has
been closed.
Comment 2 Terje Bless 2002-10-27 11:24:49 UTC
Changed the two FORMs on index.html into a single POST form. Since we now
redirect to a GETable resource when there is no file upload, this should still
result in a bookmarkable/GETable result page unless you upload a file. There is
still an unresolved issue if you choose a file and then change your mind and
enter an URI. The file upload will be preferred and validated, which may be
unexpected. Leaving it as a separate issue for now.
