Can't pass unicode URL to xmlrpc.Proxy

Reported by: yang Owned by:

Component: web Keywords: unicode, xmlrpc
Cc: Branch:


Passing a unicode URL into twisted.xmlrpc.Proxy() raises "TypeError: Data must not be unicode" from twisted.internet.abstract.FileDescriptor.write() (e.g. when later calling Proxy.callRemote()).

Attached is a simple test case. (For some reason, this only works sometimes; other times, it hangs for a while and either succeeds or times out.)

What's the use case of this ? Do you really have URL with unicode data ? AFAIK URL is a subset of ascii. The problem is not with xmlrpc, but with every URL in Twisted.

The apparent non-determinism is probably due to the behavior of urlparse, which sometimes returns the same type as it is passed, sometimes not, depending on whether it matches the type (instead of just the value) of a previously cached URL.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

The url parameter to Proxy.__init__ is documented to be of type str (or None). It is typical in Twisted for str to work in places where unicode does not. You just have to be careful about what you pass in here.
