Subject [jira] Resolved: (HTTPCORE-219) HttpRequestParser Fails to Detect Requests Without a Message Body
Date Thu, 04 Mar 2010 19:21:27 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCORE-219?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Oleg Kalnichevski resolved HTTPCORE-219.

    Resolution: Invalid

I am sorry, James, but your assertion is incorrect. The decision as to whether a message is
entity closing or not is taken by HttpRequestFactory, not HttpRequestParser. The default implementation
of HttpRequestFactory can be replaced by a custom impl, which can make all requests entity
enclosing,  if you are absolutely sure you need to bastardize the HTTP protocol.

And no, GET requests MAY NOT have a content body. Only POST and PUT messages are defined as
entity enclosing by the RFC2616

> The HttpRequestParser uses the request method to determine if the request has a message
body. However, HTTP 1.1 states that the presence of a message-body in a request is signaled
by the inclusion of a Content-Length or Transfer-Encoding header field in the request's header
fields. The parser should be changed to use the header to determine if a message body is present.
> As is a POST or PUT request is received without a message body cannot be processed. Furthermore,
a GET request with a message body cannot be processed either.
