Subject [jira] Created: (HTTPCLIENT-634) HostConfiguration socketFactory is ignored
Date Sat, 17 Feb 2007 12:59:06 GMT
HostConfiguration socketFactory is ignored

                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-634
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-634
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: HttpClient
    Affects Versions: Nightly Builds
         Environment: Windows, Eclipse, Java 1.5
            Reporter: John Kristian

HostConfiguration doesn't use its host.protocol to execute an HttpMethod with an absolute
URL.  It should, if the Protocol's scheme is the same as the method's URL scheme.

This bug makes it difficult to integrate a specialized SSL connection algorithm (in a SecureProtocolSocketFactory)
with a module implemented on top of HttpClient.  The latter module must not execute methods
with absolute URLs.  Of course, this is difficult when one doesn't control that module.  For
example, I recently tried to integrate SSL certificate-based client authentication with XFire.
 XFire provides a reasonable API for replacing its HttpClient, but one must hack its source
code to prevent it from executing methods with absolute URLs.

Protocol.registerProtocol is a possible answer, but it can't support two or more SSL connection
algorithms for one HTTPS host and port.
