Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-6330) HTTPConduit does not enforce configuration constraints
Date Sat, 04 Apr 2015 04:36:33 GMT
John McNair created CXF-6330:
--------------------------------

             Summary: HTTPConduit does not enforce configuration constraints
                 Key: CXF-6330
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-6330
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Configuration
    Affects Versions: 3.0.4, 2.7.0
         Environment: Linux, Java 7
            Reporter: John McNair
            Priority: Minor


The documentation states that chunking cannot be used if either of these conditions are met:
- http-conf:basicAuthSupplier is configured to provide credentials preemptively
- AutoRedirect is set to true

It further states that setAllowChunking is ignored if one of those conditions are met.

See the docs here:
http://cxf.apache.org/docs/client-http-transport-including-ssl-support.html

This makes sense, so I think the intent behind the documentation is correct.  However, it
does not reflect the behavior of the code.

If the chunking threshold is met then:
setAutoRedirect(true), unsetAllowChunking() -> request is chunked
setAutoRedirect(true), setAllowChunking(true) -> request is chunked
setAutoRedirect(true), setAllowChunking(false) -> request is not chunked

So setAllowChunking() is not ignored.

I was intending to submit a patch, but when I started digging, it seems there are several
classes which have some level of responsibility for interpreting the values in HTTPClientPolicy.
 The most natural place to impose these restrictions would be HTTPClientPolicy so that all
consumers would share a similar behavior.  However, that class is generated.

I'm not really sure where this should be fixed then.
