Subject [jira] [Commented] (CMIS-615) Change HttpUtils to use httpclient-4.x
Date Mon, 17 Dec 2012 16:37:30 GMT


Florian Müller commented on CMIS-615:

@[~pmonks]: OpenCMIS is currently using the Java built-in HttpURLConnection. There is no external
3rd party dependency to stay up to date with. Using HttpClient would introduce a new dependency,
which - in the long run - could be more painful for developers than not doing it.

@[~ajmas]: There is also SPNEGO support for HttpURLConnection. What's wrong with that?

I'm reluctant to make any changes here because they wouldn't cover the Web Services binding
implementation, which means we would have to support two different HTTP clients.

> It would be useful to convert HttpUtils to use httpclient 4.2.x. One of the benefits
for this, is that environments that use Kerberos, for example, SPNEGO can be used for authentication.
