Subject Re: [AXIS2] Throttle upload bandwidth during sending SOAP messages

Time to share my experiences: I'm stuck on some old Axis2 1.6.2
currently, which seems to use MultiThreadedHttpConnectionManager,
for which I didn't find how to provide it with a connection factory to
be able to create limiting OutputStreams at all. Maybe I missed
something somewhere...

Nevertheless, at least for my use case I think I have an easier
approach: I need to upload only one file currently and am using SOAP
with attachments to not need to encode Base64 and such. If I
understood correctly, Axis2 demands a DataHandler in those cases and
those can be created based on some DataSource, which itself wraps some
InputStream and that actually wraps the data to upload.

So what I simply did was creating a limiting InputStream around my
data to upload, wrapped that into a DataSource, wrapped that into a
DataHandler and provided that to Axis2. To let Axis2 not consume too
much memory during creation of the request, it needs to be set to use
chunked transfers.[1] In the end, Axis2 is reading somewhat small
packages from my InputStream and writing those directly to the server
and because it can only send what it read, I'm limiting upload
bandwidth that way.

Care needs to be taken regarding the limiter used, I started with
Guava RateLimiter and ran into problems[1] when using it in with only reading one byte. Apaches TimedSemaphore
worked better even in those situations. Limiting one byte only instead
of individual packets might be unnecessary, though.

Attaching some PoC in case anyone is interested. Of course it's not
strictly limiting the output, but good enough for what I need
currently. :-)


Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
