Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLUME-2782) Extension-friendly HttpSource
Date Wed, 02 Nov 2016 14:23:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLUME-2782?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15629117#comment-15629117

Tristan Stevens commented on FLUME-2782:
----------------------------------------

Historically, we've not been able to accept GitHub PRs (I'm not entirely sure why). The process
tends to be to upload a patch onto a review board (reviews.apache.org) - repository flume-git
and add the Flume group to the reviewers.

Do you think we should make documentation changes for this, or just leave it to the Javadocs?

> This patch allows third-party to developers extend HttpSource behavior easily, without
having to reimplement the whole thing.
> More specifically:
> * Adds an hook to customize {{org.mortbay.jetty.servlet.Context}}.
> * Delegates the HttpServlet instance creation to a protected factory method.
> * Changes FlumeHttpServlet visibility to {{protected}}, to let third party developers
extend from it.
> * Adds an hook in {{FlumeHTTPServlet}} to customize {{HttpServletResponse}} before it
is flushed.
> We developed this patch because we had to add a custom servlet filter to the Jetty context.
> Having this patch applied, a third-party developer could easily extend {{HttpSource}}
like this:
> {code:title=CustomHTTPSource.java|borderStyle=solid}
> public class CustomHTTPSource extends HTTPSource {
>     @Override
>     protected void customizeServletContext(Context context) {
>         super.customizeServletContext(context);
>         context.addFilter(MyCustomHttpServletFilter.class,"/*",0);
>     }
>     @Override
>     protected HttpServlet getServlet() {
>         return new KeedioFlumeHTTPServlet();
>     }
>     protected class KeedioFlumeHTTPServlet extends FlumeHTTPServlet{
>         @Override
>         protected void customizeServletResponse(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse
response) {
>             super.customizeServletResponse(request, response);
>             response.addHeader("Accept-Encoding","...");
>         }
>     }
> } 
> {code}
