Subject [jira] [Created] (CAMEL-4693) http4 Component not exposing HttpContext
Date Fri, 18 Nov 2011 17:54:51 GMT
http4 Component not exposing HttpContext

                 Key: CAMEL-4693
             Project: Camel
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: camel-http
    Affects Versions: 2.8.2
            Reporter: Jeff Segal

HttpComponents 4.x provides a facility to use a HttpContext for a given request by calling
HttpClient.execute(HttpUriRequest, HttpContext), but it looks like the http4 Camel Component
doesn't have hooks to use this. Looking at the latest source of org.apache.camel.component.http4.HttpProducer,
I only see one way of calling HttpClient.execute():

    protected HttpResponse executeMethod(HttpUriRequest httpRequest) throws IOException {
        return httpClient.execute(httpRequest);

Perhaps this could be made available in a similar fashion to HttpClientConfigurer? (for example
creating a HttpContextConfigurer)

My particular symptom is that I'm unable to force the http4 component to use preemptive authentication,
which relies on HttpContext in HttpClient 4.x. In HttpClient 3.x, this was made possible by
the HttpClientParams flag "authenticationPreemptive". However, it appears that this was removed
for 4.x in favor of using HttpContext because of security concerns.
