>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-6871
>             Project: CXF
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Transports
>    Affects Versions: 2.7.11, 3.1.6
>            Reporter: Colin Hurley
>            Priority: Trivial

> The default value CXF sends for the User-Agent HTTP header is formatted as E.g. {{Apache
CXF 3.1.6}}.
> According to the HTTP specification, multiple products in the User-Name header are delimited
by whitespace, and a product can optionally indicate its version by separating the product
name and product version with a slash. ??RFC-1945, Sections 10.15, 3.7; RFC-2616, Sections
14.43, 3.8??
> Based on this information, CXF's default User-Agent value is indicating three products
with unspecified versions: {{Apache}}, {{CXF}}, and {{3.1.6}}, rather than the intended Product
Name = {{Apache CXF}} and Product Version = {{3.1.6}}.
> I suggest altering the formatting so the default User-Agent for CXF becomes E.g. {{Apache-CXF/3.1.6}}.
 This will convey the intended product information so it semantically complies with RFC-1945
and RFC-2616.
