>                 Key: CAMEL-4693
>                 URL:
>             Project: Camel
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: camel-http
>    Affects Versions: 2.8.2
>            Reporter: Jeff Segal
>            Assignee: Claus Ibsen
>             Fix For: 2.9.2, 2.10.0
>         Attachments: http4-httpContext.patch
> 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.
