Subject Proposed patch in HTTPSender
Date Mon, 07 Nov 2005 08:56:09 GMT

I write an Axis plug-in for update the http client transport. This 
plug-in add a *Load Balancing* and *Failover* with the client. You can 
find the code and documentation here : 

Javadoc : 
Source : 

With this jar file, the client can retry x times the request or change 
to another server if some problems are detect.

The plug-in update the MessageContext.TRANS_URL property with the 
destination IP, and call more than one time the super.invoke(). With 
this strategy, the "Host:" header is set with the IP and not the hostname.

If the destination server use this header to distinguish different 
virtual host, this strategy isn't correct. It's rarely the case in a 
cluster architecture.

The patch I propose, declare a protected method to manipulate the Host
