There is a default content-type parameter in HTTP Manager coomponent.

The upload sampler(Http Request):
    In the request header sent by java implement, the value of content-type is correct. 
    In the request header sent by httpclient4 implement, the value of content-type is the default value defined by HTTP Manager, not the correct value.

See the attachment for details.

@zooltech, could you test the next nightly or build from trunk and report back, whether it fixes this issue?

    Don't let users override content-type header when using multipart/form-data
    The content-type header will contain the boundary from the multiparts. That
    value can't be guessed by the user and using the original given content-type
    will very likely be wrong.
    Apart from that reason, the Java implementation of HTTPSampler will use
    the generated content-type anyway and therefore this patch will make the
    two implementations behave consistently.

Closed, as no feedback probably means, it works.
