Andreas Veithen commented on AXIS-2911:
---------------------------------------

What features would this transport provide that are not provided by the new HTTP transport
based on java.net.URL (http://axis.apache.org/axis/java/transports/http-javanet/index.html)?

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AXIS-2911
>             Project: Axis
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Basic Architecture
>    Affects Versions: 1.4
>         Environment: Debian GNU/Linux
>            Reporter: Markus Koschany
>              Labels: security
>
> Axis depends on commons-httpclient. https://hc.apache.org/httpclient-3.x/
> This library has reached EOL status four years ago and was replaced by Apache httpcomponents-client:
> https://hc.apache.org/httpcomponents-client-ga/index.html
> commons-httpclient was affected by multiple security issues in the past but is no longer
supported by its upstream developers. This makes it difficult for Linux distributions to provide
any support for applications and libraries which still depend on commons-httpclient.
> Please consider to make the switch to httpcomponents-client
