Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 848529
Creating a domain deployment spins and never uploads the WAR on IE8

Changing to core UI.
Okay, I did a little more digging into content uploads.
Uploading a sample.war as a piece of content -- either through a Content tab for a resource or to Administration > Content Repository > repo -- works just fine on IE8.
Attempting to upload the same WAR as a child resource (Inventory > Create Child) never finishes on IE8. I tried this on both EAP 6 and JBAS 4 resources, and both of them spin fruitlessly.
I tested Inventory > Create Child on FF 3.6 on Windows 7 and it works fine.
There is a workaround for this one. The workaround is to use IE9 (or anything other than IE8).
Created attachment 605238 [details]
example alert CLI script
Created attachment 605250 [details]
example bundle -- I don't think it does anything
So, I tested this for bundles, and it behaves exactly the same as for alert + CLI.
In the bundle creation wizard, when I try to upload the file and click next, the spinner spins endlessly and never goes to the next screen. I canceled the action after 7 mins in IE8.
However, when I tried to test it on FF, the bundle had actually been created, which meant the file upload succeeded.
The problem is, this bundle that I used does not require any additional files or any inputs, so it could simply complete the bundle creation. I don't know what would happen if the bundle required additional files or config; it may create an odd half-bundle state or it could fail silently.
I tested this in 3.1.1 in IE8 (failed), 3.1.1 on Firefox (succeeded), and 3.0.0 in IE8 (succeeded).
The upload submit completion handlers were not getting registering properly in IE8. I subclassed /modules/enterprise/gui/coregui/src/main/java/org/rhq/enterprise/gui/coregui/client/components/upload/DynamicCallbackFormImpl.java to override the event registration and added an entry to the CoreGUI.gwt.xml to use the IE8 version when IE8 is detected (so as to isolate any risk with stability to other browsers).
