Subject [jira] Updated: (IVY-864) HTTP Handlers ignore unsuccessful response codes.
Date Tue, 22 Jul 2008 05:44:31 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVY-864?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

James P. White updated IVY-864:
-------------------------------

    Attachment: http_download_response_patch.txt

This is a patch to BasicURLHandler and HttpClientHandler so that they will only successfully
download a file if the HTTP response code is 2XX.  I think that is pretty much the right thing
to do for starters (more elaborate would be dealing with redirection 3XX).

> The HttpClientHander.download and BasicURLHandler.download methods don't bother to check
the HTTP response code from the server.  As a result they will put anything that the server
sends back as the contents of the artifact.  This isn't so good if it is something like the
HTML message for a 404 or 503 and what you wanted was a JAR file.  In fact it is pretty bad
because then the cache is poisoned and the user is left with purging the cache as the only
solution.
