Empty reply is seen from EAP 7 Undertow if sendRedirect is called after setContentLength

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • We see an empty reply from JBoss in some cases. For instance, errors like the following from curl:
* Empty reply from server
* Connection #0 to host localhost left intact
curl: (52) Empty reply from server
  • For some requests, our httpd proxy logs an end of file error trying to get a response from EAP 7:
[proxy_http:error] [pid 850109:tid 140275963909888] (70014)End of file found: [client] AH01102: error reading status line from remote server
  • We note this occurs when response.sendRedirect is called after response.setContentLength.


  • JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 7.x
