Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-834) Transparent Content Coding support
Date Wed, 18 Mar 2009 20:25:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-834?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12683150#action_12683150

James Abley commented on HTTPCLIENT-834:

W00t! By all means list me as a contributor. I wasn't expecting it to be accepted yet; I thought
it was still a little rough. I hadn't found a coding style guide, so I was expecting some
feedback there, apache license header, maybe a contributors agreement to submit? Not that
I'm complaining. Thank you.

If the demand is there to allow it to be configured / removed, then we can add that.

I would like to look at content caching. I would think that's a bit more involved and I'm
not sure that I can commit the time that I think it would require at the moment, but it's
definitely something that I'd like to see in the library. Or I might see what else is in JIRA
that looks fun, that would take the amount of time that I can commit to at the moment.

I'll also have to give it some thought as to how that might be implemented. I've got a little
too much baggage in terms of how I've implemented something like that using httpclient-3.x
and ehcache, so I need to step back and think about it using the 4.x API and (pluggable) cache

> I would like to see HttpClient features brought up to parity with other libraries, both
in Java and other languages. c.f. Python's httplib2 (not yet in the standard library, but
many would like to see it in there). That library transparently handles gzip and compress
content codings.
> This issue is to capture possible solutions to providing this sort of innate functionality
in HttpClient, so that users aren't required to know RFC2616 intimately. The HttpClient library
should do the right thing and use the network in the most efficient manner possible.
