Subject Re: [PATCH] Single line feed treated as false connection close
Date Thu, 16 Oct 2003 06:28:09 GMT

thanks for tracking that down. I think the fix for the HttpParser is 
okay. The two other issues need proper review and testing. Unfortunately 
it's too late now (we are in RC2) to make API changes to HttpMethod.

Please if you have the time, could you split the patch into three parts:

1. Parser fix
2. NPE in HttpMethodBase
3. enhancements

Part 1 is trivial. But part 2 and 3 should be acompanied by a test case.
And could you explain the goal of part 3, please? This patch will not 
make it into 2.0 but you are welcome to propose a change for CVS HEAD.
