Allow polymorphic use of addParameter

           Summary: Allow polymorphic use of addParameter
           Product: Commons
           Version: 2.0 Final
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: HttpClient
        AssignedTo: commons-httpclient-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: rjbodkin@hotmail.com


I have some common code (in a reverse proxy server) that uses addParameter on 
instances of both PostMethod and MultipartPostMethod

It would be great if either addParameter were made an abstract method on 
ExpectContinueMethod or both were made to implement a common base class. Here's 
my workaround:

    private void addPostParameter(ExpectContinueMethod method, String name, 
String value) {
        if (method instanceof PostMethod) {
            ((PostMethod)method).addParameter(name, value);
        } else if (method instanceof MultipartPostMethod) {
            ((MultipartPostMethod)method).addParameter(name, value);
        } else {
            throw new IllegalArgumentException("addPostParameter is only 
defined for PostMethod and MultipartPostMethod");
        }
        
    }
    // whoa - smells pretty bad
