Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-911) Support underscore in domain name, or provide better exception
Date Tue, 09 Feb 2010 22:59:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-911?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12831734#action_12831734

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-911:

Are you sure this has anything to do with the underscore in domain name? The following test
throws a UnknownHostException for me:
HttpHost targetHost = new HttpHost("www.what_ever.com", 80, "http"); 
DefaultHttpClient httpclient = new DefaultHttpClient();
BasicHttpContext localcontext = new BasicHttpContext();

HttpGet httpget = new HttpGet("/");
HttpResponse response = httpclient.execute(targetHost, httpget, localcontext);


HttpEntity entity = response.getEntity();
if (entity != null) {

Exception in thread "main" java.net.UnknownHostException: www.what_ever.com
	at java.net.PlainSocketImpl.connect(PlainSocketImpl.java:177)
	at java.net.SocksSocketImpl.connect(SocksSocketImpl.java:366)
	at java.net.Socket.connect(Socket.java:520)
	at org.apache.http.conn.scheme.PlainSocketFactory.connectSocket(PlainSocketFactory.java:123)

I suspect you may be trying to execute a request with a relative request URI, in which case
the IllegalArgumentException you are getting seems reasonable.
