Subject RE: Handling HTTP 1.1 status 100 responses
Date Thu, 17 Jul 2003 09:09:02 GMT
Hello Patrick,

I just found the code that ignores any 1xx responses in
HttpMethodBase.readResponse(HttpState, HttpConnection)

If an "Expect:" header is sent, the client will wait for the
100-continue response before sending the request body,
that's what I found first.

Are you using an older version of the client?

Hi Oleg,

the HTTP 1.1. standard allows a HTTP/1.1 100 response to be sent back to
the client if:
he accepts version 1.1,
he explicitly asked for a continue (the tipical status 100 handshake) OR
just to signal the client he is processing the request and it may take a
little longer (without any explicit continue header). I find myself in 
second case and I cannot blame the server since he is compliant with the
standard. Is there any other way I can skip this first response without
having to re-execute the postMethod?

thanks a lot,
