Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-7448) Enable use of reflection in JAX-RS client by default
Date Mon, 17 Jul 2017 20:57:02 GMT
Andy McCright created CXF-7448:

             Summary: Enable use of reflection in JAX-RS client by default
                 Key: CXF-7448
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: JAX-RS
    Affects Versions: 3.2.0
            Reporter: Andy McCright
             Fix For: 3.2.0

Per discussion on the dev list, we should enable the use of reflection for "non-standard"
HTTP methods in the JAX-RS client.  By default, the HttpURLConnection will only allow "standard"
HTTP methods, such as GET, PUT, POST, DELETE, OPTIONS and HEAD.  It does not include PATCH
or other user-defined methods and will throw an exception when a user attempts to use one
of these methods.

CXF already works around this issue by using reflection to set HTTP method when a system property
or message property is set.  This bypasses the check and allows the method to process.  For
CXF 3.2, I would like to make this property enabled by default, so that these "non-standard"
HTTP methods will work by default.
