Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCORE-132) In NIO, there doesn't seem to be a simple way to set a custom HttpRequestFactory
Date Sun, 16 Dec 2007 02:19:43 GMT

Rachel Greenham commented on HTTPCORE-132:

Cool beans. :-) For my local change I did start off by doing it as a protected factory method,
but then changed it to taking a factory in the constructor *primarily* to keep symmetry with
the BufferingHttpServiceHandler constructor in 4.0alpha6. But I'm happy with it either way.

I'll wait for 4.0beta1 to actually appear before upgrading to it. :-)

>         Environment: Java 5. Dev platform is OS X Leopard but I doubt that's relevant.

>             Fix For: 4.0-beta1
>         Attachments: ServerIOEventDispatch.java
> It appears that for developing a server application using NIO, you can't easily define
a replacement HttpRequestFactory. It's hardcoded to create a new DefaultHttpRequestFactory
in DefaultServerIOEventDispatch, in a method that can't be overridden because the subclass
method also references a *private* data member (the allocator) of DefaultServerIOEventDispatch.
It could be done by also instantiating and supplying an external ByteBufferAllocator in the
overridden method, which "wastes" the instance created in the constructor. (I notice the constructor
that lets you supply an allocator in 4.0-alpha6 is gone from later versions - but I'm not
even interested in replacing the allocator, I just want to replace the request factory.)
> The way I am doing it is by actually *copying* the current source of DefaultServerIOEventDispatch
to my project (with a rename) to make my own modified version to implement IOEventDispatch
- which seems excessive for the small change I actually want. The change I made was simply
to have a constructor that allows me to supply an already-instantiated HttpRequestFactory,
in a similar fashion to the constructor of BufferingHttpServiceHandler takes an instantiated
> This also stops this IOEventDispatch from creating a new instance of the *factory* for
each hit, which it seems to be doing at the moment...
