Subject [jira] [Commented] (AXIS2-5909) happyaxis.jsp doesn't support httpclient4, doesn't pick up custom WEB-INF/conf/axis2.xml
Date Wed, 14 Mar 2018 22:12:00 GMT


robert lazarski commented on AXIS2-5909:

[~veithen] any thoughts on the happyaxis.jsp tweak as described? I could just commit the change
but I wanted to give an opportunity to discuss first. Plus Jira is helpful for communication. 

For example, perhaps the default should be httpclient4 with null args to the method createConfigurationContextFromFileSystem()

Also I would like to discuss the larger issue of removing httpclient3 support from axis2,
would the dev list be a better place?

>             Project: Axis2
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.7.7
>            Reporter: robert lazarski
>            Priority: Major
> Axis2 1.7.x introduced the ability to use the httpclient4 libs instead of the unsupported
httpclient3 libs via changes to WEB-INF/conf/axis2.xml , however those changes are not picked
up in the following code in happyaxis.jsp: 
> ConfigurationContext configctx = 
>                     ConfigurationContextFactory.createConfigurationContextFromF
> ileSystem(null, null);
> If there are no httpclient3 libs in the WAR because they were purposely removed and httpclient4
was configured as a replacement, the happyaxis.jsp validate link will still attempt to load
those httpclient3 classes. The result is: 
> java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/commons/httpclient
> /HttpConnectionManager
> The distributed axis2.war/WEB-INF/web.xml shows commented out args on AxisServlet for
the axis repo, but those didn't appear to help the happyaxis.jsp loading of the validate link
with httpclient4 configured. 
> This code tweak in happyaxis.jsp does seem to work. Any reason this code would not be
a good idea by default? And imho the axis2 team should also consider removing httpclient3
support entirely for security reasons.
