Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-834) Transparent Content Coding support
Date Thu, 06 Aug 2009 14:19:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-834?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12740078#action_12740078

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

> I hopefully described in the ticket why I think that this should work out of the box
without requiring changes for existing clients. 
> That's why I'm trying to get it working as part of the existing API. 

Yes, you did, but I still think the chance of breaking existing apps in some subtle ways is
simply too high to have this feature enabled per default. 

> Would people need to alter their code (or maybe just Spring / Guice / etc configuration)?

Those who use a DI framework to wire together their components this would be a one liner config
change.

> Should that be based on trunk or the existing 4.1 branch? 

4.1 branch.

> 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.
