Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-834) Transparent Content Coding support
Date Fri, 31 Jul 2009 16:00:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-834?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12737575#action_12737575

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

Welcome back, James.

Not much has changed since I committed your patch. The code is still in the 4.1 branch (to
be merged down to trunk after 4.0 GA release) [1]. I am still of the same opinion that DefaultHttpClient
ought not have the transparent content coding enabled per default (there are different options
of solving the problem, HTTPCLIENT-838 being one). You should still consider submitting an
an individual or a corporate CLA.

All discussions about HttpCore / HttpClient development should take place on the dev mailing
list.

> 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.
