Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-816) HttClient should support Accept-Encoding: gzip out of the box
Date Sun, 01 Feb 2009 23:09:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-816?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12669476#action_12669476
] 

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-816:
----------------------------------------------

HttpClient is _not_ a browser. It is an HTTP transport library.

It is irrelevant what present generation of browsers can or cannot do. We should either provide
a reasonably complete support for content encodings as defined in RFC2616, or leave GZip compression
as an option available from the 'contrib' package.

> I think HttpClient really ought to support Accept-Encoding: gzip without requiring any
effort from the client developer. Allowing Content-Encoding: gzip responses can be a great
bandwidth saver.
> But it also needs to cater for developers that have coded their own solution to this
issue.
