Subject [jira] Created: (HTTPCORE-158) Support for 'Upgrade' request header / 101 (Switching Protocols) response (as defined per RFC 2817)
Date Thu, 24 Apr 2008 18:11:21 GMT
Support for 'Upgrade' request header / 101 (Switching Protocols) response (as defined per RFC

                 Key: HTTPCORE-158
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCORE-158
             Project: HttpComponents HttpCore
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: HttpCore
            Reporter: Oleg Kalnichevski
             Fix For: Future

Presently HttpCore provides support for HTTP CONNECT method for establishing end-to-end tunnels
across HTTP proxies as specified in the RFC 2817. However, HttpCore currently does not support
'Upgrade' / 101 (Switching Protocols) handshaking, which does not seem as widely used by the
common HTTP agents and servers as HTTP CONNECT. 

Adding support for upgrading plain connections to TLS will require significant amount of work
and is likely to call for non-trivial changes to the existing protocol handlers. 

We currently have no resources within the project to assign to this task, but will gladly
assist an external contributor willing to work on adding support for 'Upgrade' / 101 (Switching
Protocols) handshaking to HttpCore. This may also be a good topic for a Google Summer of Code
project or a similar program.
