Hi,

I want to pass a file as a multi part content. Following is my code:

###########Start of code##############
require 'rubygems'
require 'rest_client'

request = RestClient::Request.new(
          :method => :post,
          :url => 'https://10.99.133.54:8281/vco/api/plugins/',
          :user => 'vadmin',
          :password => 'vadmin',
        :accept => 'application/xml',
    :Accept_Encoding => 'gzip, deflate',
     :Accept_Charset => 'ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7',
    :content_type => 'application/zip',
          :payload => {
            :multipart => true,
            :file =>
File.new("C:\\plugins\\o11nplugin-powershell-1.0.1.vmoapp")
          })
response = request.execute

puts response.headers
puts response.status
puts response.body
###########End of code##############


The file 'o11nplugin-powershell-1.0.1.vmoapp' is a binary file.

I am getting error:

C:/Ruby200/lib/ruby/gems/2.0.0/gems/rest-client-1.6.7/lib/restclient/abstract_re

        from importPlugin.rb:17:in `<main>'



Can anybody please help me to understand the issue and write a multipart
content in the REST request?

Regards,
Shubhada
