Subject RE: MultiThreadedConnectionManager based on commons pool
Date Fri, 07 May 2004 10:53:34 GMT

Andrea,

Both 2.0 & CVS HEAD nightlies are available <http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/httpclient/downloads.html>.

This may sound a bit harsh, but I _personally_ do not see 2.0 API worthwhile of any further
development. As useful as it is HttpClient 2.0 API is fundamentally flawed in many ways. HttpClient
3.0 will resolve many of the known problems <http://cvs.apache.org/viewcvs.cgi/jakarta-commons/httpclient/release_notes.txt?rev=1.21&view=markup>
and will render 2.0 completely obsolete. Again, this is just my personal (humble) opinion.
As long as there's substantial interest in HttpClient 2.0, it will be supported. However,
I do think all new development should take place in CVS HEAD.

Oleg

management with the multi-threaded connection manager does take a little bit of explaining.
Per default the connection manager does not attempt to close idle connections as before. It
simply provides the user with the means to handle idle connections the way the user sees fit.
There's a new method in the HttpConnectionManager interface called #closeIdleConnections(long)
intended to advise the connection manager to drop those connections that have been idle for
the specified period of time. This method can be invoked either from the main communication
thread during a period of inactivity or from a dedicated  monitor thread on a regular basis.
The helper class IdleConnectionTimeoutThread can be used to easily set up a simple idle connection
monitor. The reason for not running a dedicated idle con
nection monitor per default is to keep HttpClient usable in an EJB container. The EJB spec
requires that enterprise beans do no explicit thread management.

Well, i thought the patch was for 2.0 branch, not 3.0!!! (i have to
admit that i gave only a fast look at the bugzilla reports on the list,
'cause i had a lot of work to do.. ;-) )
In fact i developed the code from the official 2.0 code!

However, i'll try to download the source from cvs, and compile it.. i
think that the nightly builds are from 2.0 branch, or not?

By the way, if you need further information about my code, feel free to ask

Cheers
Andrea
