|Summary:||changing Content-Type for HTTP POST request|

I have the following problem with JMeter. I am using GWT (Google Web Toolkit) java framework for building web apps. GWT encapsulates ajax http calls, sending ajax requests via POST to server. Server always expects content-type: text/plain; charset=utf-8. That is problem because JMeter's http sampler changes headers. Even if I have correct setting for Content-type in the http request sampler node, JMeter changes this and sends Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded instead. As I said this is problem with GWT ajax calls. Is there any way how to make JMeter not to change this header? I used HTTP Request Manager Config element but with no success. As a workaround I manually changed the source code, edited org.apache.jmeter.protocol.http.sampler.PostWriter and commented line, which changes the header. However, there should be a cleaner way to do it. Vladimir

OK - I've changed the code to only set the content-type if not already set. The HttpClient sampler already behaves like this.
