Handle thrown error from res.setHeader() and res.writeHead() #3178

merged 2 commits into from Jul 5, 2016

@kanongil kanongil commented May 24, 2016

The behavior of res.writeHead() is changed in Node@6 (and possibly node@4.4.5) so that it can throw a RangeError for certain statusCodes, see nodejs/node#6291. When this throws, hapi will log an internal error without sending a response.

This PR adds a try/catch to catch this error and respond with a 500 to the client instead.

Additionally, it will catch thrown errors from res.setHeader(), eg. for an empty string header, and respond as above.
