Getting error "Backendless.XMLHttpRequest is not a constructor" when running Business Logic


(Sean Doyle) #1

I have no idea what the problem is.
My code:


/*Created on 08/22/2017 11:59:34.*/


class MyService {
 /**
 * @param {String} name
 */
 
 helloWorld(name) {
 return new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
 
 
 var queryBuilder = Backendless.DataQueryBuilder.create();
 getIngredients( queryBuilder );
 
 
 
 
 function getIngredients( queryBuilder ) {
 Backendless.Persistence.of("Ingredients").find( queryBuilder )
 .then( handleResult )
 .catch( handleError );
 }
 
 function handleResult( ingredients ) {
 printIngredients( ingredients );
 
 if( ingredients.length > 0 ) {
 queryBuilder.prepareNextPage();
 getIngredients( queryBuilder );
 }
 else {
 console.log( "Reached the end of collection" );
 } 
 }
 
 function handleError( error ) {
 console.log( "Server reported an error - " );
 console.log( error.message );
 console.log( error.errorCode ); 
 return "E-"+error.message;


 
 }
 
 function printIngredients( ingredientsCollection ) {var ingredients = [];
 var ing = "";
 
 for( var i in ingredientsCollection )
 ing = ing + ingredientsCollection[ i ].namePrint + ","; 
 
 
 
 var data = [];
 for (var i = 0; i < ing.length; i++){ 
 data.push(ing.charCodeAt(i));
 }
 
 var savedFile = Backendless.Files.saveFile( "testfolder", "test.txt", data, true)
 .then( function( fileURL ) {
 resolve(fileURL);
 })
 .catch( function( error ) {
 reject(error.message);
 }); 


 }
 
 });
 }
}
Backendless.ServerCode.addService( MyService );

Hi Sean,

Does the same service call work when you run the service in the debug mode?

Regards.

Hi, Sean,
I’ve reproduced this error. I’m sure the problem is in the method saveFile, not in your code.
I’ve created the internal ticket (BKNDLSS-15887). We will let you know as soon as it is fixed.

Regards Ilya

Hi Sean

As workaround I can propose you this one:


const directoryPath = 'my-directory/and-sub-directory'
const fileName = 'my-cool-file.txt'
const data = ['hello', 'there']
const content = JSON.stringify(data)


return Backendless.Request
  .put(`${Backendless.appPath}/files/binary/${directoryPath}/${fileName}?overwrite=true`)
  .set({ 'Content-Type': 'text/plain' })
  .send(Buffer.from(content).toString('base64'))

We have fixed it in the new 4.1.0 version of JS-SDK
