Subject [jira] Created: (AXIS2-3294) Change default http protocol to 1.0 from 1.1
Date Mon, 22 Oct 2007 15:31:51 GMT
Change default http protocol to 1.0 from 1.1

                 Key: AXIS2-3294
             Project: Axis 2.0 (Axis2)
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: client-api
    Affects Versions: 1.3
         Environment: Generated client from wsdl using the following command:

%AXIS2_HOME%\bin\WSDL2Java -uri <file name>.wsdl -p <> -d adb
            Reporter: Nathan Hook

When a new client it generated with the WSDL2Java tool the base http protocol is 1.1.

Not all web servers implement the http 1.1 protocol and it is very difficult to debug the

A client will send the request, but then in our case, the server would not even register that
a request was made.  (Our apache access logs never showed the request.)  A very difficult
problem to debug.  We actually had to place a network sniffer on our testing machines to see
the request being sent from our client and only lucked into seeing somewhere that we could
change the protocol setting and tried it.

I would think that a product like Axis2 would be built out of the box to work with the lowest
common denominator.  Which in this case is the http 1.0 protocol.  Then allow the end users
to upgrade the protocol as needed.

>From my understanding almost all web servers are backwards compatible with the http 1.0
protocol, so why not use it as the default protocol?

Thank you for your time.
