Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCORE-15) Provide a way to access IP Address of the remote client making a request
Date Mon, 20 Nov 2006 15:10:04 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCORE-15?page=comments#action_12451330 ] 
Roland Weber commented on HTTPCORE-15:

Hello Asankha, Oleg,

I don't see how we could address this in the HttpCore API. We don't want to reintroduce network
layer dependencies now that we finally managed to shrink the connection interfaces to a minimum.
We could add something to the implementation classes, but I am in disfavor of lifting this
requirement to the core API level.
IMHO IP addresses should be confined to connection implementations. Maybe in the HttpConn
API, but not in HttpCore.

The way traditional application servers handle this is that the web server plugin registers
the remote IP address and forwards it as meta data with the request. Maybe we can change the
server connection implementation to add the IP address to the HttpContext? I'm not sure how
that fits with the NIO stuff though.
