Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-593) ProtocolSocketFactory equals and hashCode don't support subclassing
Date Wed, 02 Aug 2006 18:36:14 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-593?page=comments#action_12425329 ] 
Roland Weber commented on HTTPCLIENT-593:

>   if (protocolB.equals(protocolA))
>            System.out.println("What! protocolB == protocolA!!!"); 
>   if (!protocolB.equals(protocolB))
>            System.out.println("Uh, You may want to fix this");

These are good enough to convince me. The others were not.

The contracts for equals and hasCodes were problematic in the very first version of Java,
and have even been changed in later versions because of that. You can't expect them to be
implemented correctly everywhere. But since protocols have to be compared to eachother, it's
better to implement this change.  

cheers and thanks,

> The implementation of equals and hashCode attempts to make all instances of the classes
equal.  However, the manner in which the methods are coded makes it necessary for any subclass
to implement equals and hashCode themselves.  A minor change to the methods in these classes
will make possible to subclass these factories without re-implementing the equals and hashCode.
 The method equals should be written as

>         return ((obj != null) && obj.getClass().equals(DefaultProtocolSocketFactory.class));
> And similarly, the hashCode method should be
>         return getClass().hashCode();

>         return DefaultProtocolSocketFactory.class.hashCode();
