Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-596) read() on the stream returned by HttpMethod.getResponseBodyAsStream() cannot be simply canceled with Thread.interrupt
Date Wed, 09 Aug 2006 09:01:14 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-596?page=comments#action_12426875 ] 
Arnaud Masson commented on HTTPCLIENT-596:


1) I understand that the only way is to interrupt is to close the socket, but it should be
*hidden from external code*.
To call abort() you must have a reference to the HttpMethod.
But the reference to a thread should be enough to cancel it ! Maybe the HttpMethod object
is only referenced on the stack. 
Keeping that reference to the HttpMethod outside the working thread (just to be able to cancel)
makes the code more complex and difficult to maintain.

2) Yes, it's HttpClient job to emulate behaviors that the JRE doesn't have.
Otherwise we would probably use the java.net.HttpURLConnection. :)

Why https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-386 has been fixed and not this one ?
>From the caller point of view, it's almost  the same problem: interrupt() must work.

I am disappointed because it is a real problem, even if it may not  be possible to fix it
in the current version.
Will HttpClient 4 with NIO fix it ?

>          Components: HttpClient

> I have a working thread that needs to download some big file with HttpMethod.getResponseBodyAsStream().
> A swing component displays a progress indication and has a "stop" button.
> When the stop button is clicked by the user, I would like to stop the download as soon
as possible, so I call interrupt() on the working thread from the EDT, which should throw
an InterruptedException or InterruptedIOException inside the working thread.
> But the read() operation on the stream returned by HttpMethod.getResponseBodyAsStream()
is not interrupted.
> The working thread stacktrace is:
> 	SocketInputStream.socketRead0(FileDescriptor, byte[], int, int, int)  //<---------
> 	SocketInputStream.read(byte[], int, int) line: 129	
> 	BufferedInputStream.fill() line: 218	
> 	BufferedInputStream.read() line: 235	
> 	ChunkedInputStream.getChunkSizeFromInputStream(InputStream) line: 249	
> 	ChunkedInputStream.nextChunk() line: 220	
> 	ChunkedInputStream.read(byte[], int, int) line: 175	
> 	AutoCloseInputStream(FilterInputStream).read(byte[], int, int) line: 111	
> 	AutoCloseInputStream.read(byte[], int, int) line: 107	
> 	...
> I know that  the JRE SocketInputStream doesn't support interrupt() but HttpClient should
hide this problem.
> A workaround is to use request.abort() but it should be possible to cancel a thread without
knowing on what it is blocked.
