Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3706) support for proxy
Date Wed, 19 Dec 2007 17:58:43 GMT


Sangjin Lee commented on GERONIMO-3706:

That's correct.  When you're tunneling, the requests may be normal.  Although HTTP/1.1 servers
*MUST* accept absolute URIs in the request line, I suppose it's only safer to provide URIs
without the host.

As for the filters, the order is quite important.  The proxy filter should be located after
the protocol codec filter as it needs codec (HTTP encoding and decoding), whereas the SSL
filter should be inserted before the protocol codec filter.

Also, we might not want to remove the proxy filter and consolidate any proxy related logic
into the filter as much as possible.

> Proxy support is a critical feature for HTTP clients.  I'd like to have AsyncHttpClient
support proxy.  The following would be considered as the basic features:
> - Enabling connecting through proxies for http and https targets
> - Exclusion (domains that should not go through proxies)
> - Allowing proxy related configuration on AsyncHttpClient
> - Support for proxy authentication, at least for Basic authentication (and perhaps Digest
> There are things like SOCKS support, etc., but the above will be a good start.  Thoughts?
