Description markus.m.86 2012-03-25 11:02:01 UTC
Problem description: 
Submissions from an XML Form are empty. 
 - If the Submission Method is "Put" with an Action like "file:///home/user/test.xml" the file "test.xml" is created but completely empty (no XML header or XML content from the form).
 - If the Submission Method is "Post" with Action being a URL to a Server (eXist XML-DB or Apache Webserver with a PHP-Script) the Server don't get any XML data

Current behavior: 
 1) empty file is created (if submit the form data to the local file system was chosen)
 2) no XML data is sent to an server instance (if the "Post" method was chosen)

Expected behavior:
 1) create a XML file containing the XML form data
 2) OR send the XML form data to the server

Platform (if different from the browser): 
 Seen on 
 - LibreOffice 3.5.1 on Ubuntu 10.10
 - LibreOffice 3.5.1 on Windows 7

Note: I've no problems with getting the XML data in a file "test.xml" with LibreOffice 3.3.4 on Ubuntu 11.04
