Subject RE: [httpclient] How to post data without a parameter name?
Date Wed, 19 Feb 2003 22:58:40 GMT
I'd tend to recommend going to 2.0a2 if you're already using a 2.0 build
anyway.  The life cycle of HttpClient has basically been:

1.0 version came straight from Slide and was stable.

Developers went nuts changing improving, adding functionality and as a
result things got unstable.

Then the developers started to concentrate on fixing things up and
HttpClient has become more and more stable.  2.0a2 (or better the
soon-to-be-released a3) is much more stable than the early 2.0 builds.

So basically, unless you're going into production soon and the current
version has been tested to work well for you, upgrade to 2.0a2 (and a3 when
it comes out) and concentrate on testing it.  You can always roll back if
need be.

Hope that helps,

Hi Matt,

Hmm... the version I have locally is labelled 2.0, but the docs and 
classes in it are vastly smaller than what's on the website. :/ How 
stable is 2.0a2?

I just figured out that I can use HttpMethod's setQueryString() and it 
will do what I want, but I'd rather use the newer API.
