    File upload via REST API results in corrupted file


      I'm using the (automatically deployed) REST API for Modeshape in Wildfly 8.1. I can upload plain text documents flawlessly, however when I upload a DOCX or PDF document the file becomes somehow "garbled" and I don't know why. Here's what I do:


      Create a new node via upload call (POST):




      I send the headers "Accept: application/json" and "Content-type: application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document" which is the correct MIME type for DOCX.


      I get a success response, once I browse my repo now I see the newly created node:


        "self": "http://localhost:8080/myrepo/default/items/test/foo",
        "up": "http://localhost:8080/modeshape-rest/myrepo/default/items/foo",
        "id": "c85a656f-02b9-4d06-9828-652e47a9a51a",
        "jcr:primaryType": "nt:file",
        "jcr:created": "2014-11-10T13:36:00.705+01:00",
        "children": {"jcr:content": {
          "self": "http://localhost:8080/modeshape-rest/myrepo/default/items/test/foo/jcr%3acontent",
          "up": "http://localhost:8080/modeshape-rest/myrepo/default/items/test/foo",
          "id": "f9523a32-4d27-444c-be8b-0ab63261178b"


      The jcr:content looks like this:


        "self": "http://localhost:8080/modeshape-rest/myrepo/default/items/test/foo/jcr%3acontent",
        "up": "http://localhost:8080/modeshape-rest/myrepo/default/items/test/foo",
        "id": "f9523a32-4d27-444c-be8b-0ab63261178b",
        "jcr:primaryType": "nt:resource",
        "jcr:data": "http://localhost:8080/modeshape-rest/myrepo/default/binary/test/foo/jcr%3acontent/jcr%3adata",
        "jcr:lastModified": "2014-11-10T13:43:34.646+01:00",
        "jcr:lastModifiedBy": "xxx",
        "jcr:mimeType": "application/zip"


      Now the MIME type is set to application/zip, which is weird, but not necessarily wrong since DOCX is essentially a zipped document. However when I download the file via /binary it is not decompressable and also renaming it to DOCX results in a broken file. What is wrong here?


      Same happens for PDF - I can download the file but it displays nothing but blank pages.
