Subject Re: [OutInterceptor][HttpHeader] Adding Authorization-Info entry to http header

Hi Sergey,

 > so I'll try to write one and see what happens.

Sorry for the late reply. I tried this again with the recent snapshot 
and the headers are still lost unless I abort the interceptor chain.

The implementation I have extends AbstractPhaseInterceptor<Message>. 
Phase is at Phase.POST_PROTOCOL. Code to set the header is as follows:

        Map<String, List<String>> responseHeaders = (Map<String, 
        if (responseHeaders == null) {
            responseHeaders = new HashMap<String, List<String>>();
            message.put(Message.PROTOCOL_HEADERS, responseHeaders);
        responseHeaders.put("header1", Arrays.asList(new 
        logger.debug("out message headers: " + responseHeaders);

then I do something similar to what was done here:

On the other hand, I was able to successfully retain the headers using a 
ResponseHandler implementation with the following statement:

        MultivaluedMap<String, Object> map = response.getMetadata();
        map.add("header1", "headerValue");
        //I think it is worth noting in the docs it is this easy to 
modify the headers :D

So I guess I will be using the the ResponseHandler from now on. At least 
for header post-processing.

One thing though, with messages the expected value for headers is a 
List<String>, while with Response it is just String. Would it be 
possible to adjust one so they would expect the same object?

Again, my thanks.
