Request does not callChain onFailure

Reported by digitarald | November 5th, 2008 @ 08:37 AM | in 2.0 (closed)

Chained calls currently break when a request fails, which is unexpected behaviour.

onFailure in Request.js has no callChain(); after firing the events, only onSuccess has it.

Same for cancel, it only cancels the running request but does not call the next chain. Those 2 missing calls are especially relevant if you use the option "link=chain", which implies that a completed request starts the next one.

Fix is simple, therefore no patch attached. Fix does also not change any existing specs.

    I agree that callChain should be called on complete not on success.

    What's the expected behaviour for .cancel? It could cancel the current Request and .callChain() or cancel the Request and empty the chain. I dont think introducing a argument for cancel to specify that would be a good idea. callChain(true) <- also clear the chain.

    Cancel stops the request only when its running, chain chould be called (since the request is stopped and the next step can go on. If you want to cancel and stop all chains you can use clearChain().cancel().

    The specs of cancel are, that it cancels the current request, it should NOT affect the chained functions.
