Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-682) ConnectionManager timeout not used
Date Mon, 13 Aug 2007 11:07:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-682?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12519413

Wolfgang Winter commented on HTTPCLIENT-682:

This may be true but is not obvious for a simple user of the framework. It is an internal
issue that HttpClient uses the SimpleConnectionManager that is not documented. The developer
only sees the methods and it's Javadoc and of cause assumes that the method really does what
it reclames. I agree that the SimpleConnectionManager does not work with timeout but then
make it clear in Javadoc. It took us months to find out why timeout in our application did
not work once or twice a month.

> In HttpClientParams a connectionManagerTimeout can be set but is never used. The HttpClient
uses per default the SimpleHttpConnectionManager, this class implements method getConnectionWithTimeout(
>         HostConfiguration hostConfiguration, long timeout). However, the parameter timeout
is not used in the method, despite it's name. The timeout parameter is set with HttpClientParams.connectionManagerTimeout,
therefore it is of no use in the standard framework.
> you can fix this by 
> --> correcting the method SimpleHttpConnectionManager.getConnectionWithTimeout()
> --> extending the Javadoc of SimpleHttpConnectionManager.getConnectionWithTimeout()
and HttpClientParams.setConnectionManagerTimeout() saying, that the timeout parameter is not
used in the standard default implementation.
