Subject [RFE] provide request entities in a more abstract way
Date Thu, 26 Feb 2004 09:46:34 GMT
Providing only an InputStream as a request body is not enough. We can 
not automatically repeat such a request since we are unable to reset the 
input stream without buffering it. I suggest we introduce an abstraction 
for the source of request entities such as:

interface RequestEntity {
    * Provides an input stream of the request entity. The method may be 
    * more than once and must provide a virgin stream upon each call.
   InputStream getAsStream();

We can then provide convenience classes that implement this interface, 
such as:

* class StringRequestEntity implements RequestEntity

* class FileRequestEntity implements RequestEntity


What does everybody think about this?
