Subject [jira] Updated: (HTTPCLIENT-670) add an interface for plugable dns clients
Date Tue, 17 Jul 2007 12:08:10 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-670?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Oleg Kalnichevski updated HTTPCLIENT-670:
-----------------------------------------

    Fix Version/s: 4.0 Beta 1

> So are there any plans for such an interface in version 4.x?

HttpClient 4.0 has a much more modular architecture compared to HttpClient 3.x. There are
several points where one could (fairly easily) inject such functionality: connection operator,
connection manager, protocol socket factory. Probably connection operator interface is already
perfectly sufficient. If not, we could add another interface specifically for DNS name to
IP resolution.

PS: Folks, generally, if you want something happen (or happen faster), the best way to go
about it is rolling up your sleeves and getting it done yourself (by contributing a patch)

> Currently Httpclient implicitly uses InetAddress.getByName() for DNS resolution.
> This has some drawbacks. One is that the DNS cache of Java per default caches entries
forever.
> So I'd like to be able to replace InetAddress.getByName() with another DNS client implementation.
