Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-851) Helper classes for HttpClient : spring-like templates, Gzip interceptor, spring FactoryBean, ...
Date Mon, 18 May 2009 18:47:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-851?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12710442#action_12710442

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-851:

> what do I need to do in order to submit it to the contrib package ? 

Hi Sami 
The best way to contribute your code is by submitting it as a patch against SVN trunk. If
you are familiar with SVN, svn diff command will produce a file in the unified diff format
which you could attach to this issue.

>                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-851
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-851
>             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 4.0 Beta 2
>            Reporter: Sami Dalouche
> HttpClient API is pretty much low-level, and needs some obscure setup (Registry, ..)
to target the common use case (sometimes, you don't care about the low level details, you
> want to fire an http client, and hit a given web resource).
> I have extracted some supporting code out of my application in the hope to make it widely
available for others. It is available at :
> http://www.sirika.com/maven2/releases/com/sirika/httpclienthelpers/com.sirika.httpclienthelpers-assembly/0.1/com.sirika.httpclienthelpers-assembly-0.1-all.zip
> It contains :
> - HttpClientTemplate that automatically open/close connections in case of exceptions.It
also provides a kind of generic http error handling mechanism.
> - a spring HttpClientFactoryBean (as well as a helper factory class for httpclient) that
allows setting up http client for the common use case 
> - an InputStreamSourceBody that can be used to create POST entities that are repeatable,
wrapping a spring InputStreamSource
> - the code for the GZIP interceptors that are documented as examples on httpclient website.

> The code is still not tested (just extracted that logic from my application), needs some
polishing, and a few things like the error handling mechanism still need more thought. But
I feel it can be helpful to others.
> So, my question is : can we create a kind of -contrib project for httpclient, that allows
people to share their helpers with the community ?
> the code is currently available under under apache v2 license, but I'm willing to adopt
whatever licensing/copyright issues that would help to make this available.
> Oh, also, if you want to see the code in action, here's an example of  a REST client
that uses it :
> http://www.sirika.com/maven2/releases/com/sirika/pymager/pymager-java-client-assembly/0.11/pymager-java-client-assembly-0.11-all.zip
> (which is another project born out of extracted code from my application, that I'm trying
to push as open source ; I just lack time to handle the community / website / etc issues).
