Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-834) Transparent Content Coding support
Date Wed, 18 Mar 2009 22:03:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-834?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12683196#action_12683196

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-834:
----------------------------------------------

> I wasn't expecting it to be accepted yet; I thought it was still a little rough

The work is far from being done. I just prefer smaller, incremental patches.

> maybe a contributors agreement to submit

Yes, you should consider submitting an indivudual CLA, maybe even a corporate CLA, if you
are working on HttpClient during office hours

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

It surely must be possible to disable content encoding. There are enough situations when it
is not desired, for instance when trouble-shooting.  I am still not convinced it should be
enabled per default.

> 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.
