Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCORE-219) HttpRequestParser Fails to Detect Requests Without a Message Body
Date Fri, 05 Mar 2010 14:26:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCORE-219?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12841878#action_12841878

James Leigh commented on HTTPCORE-219:

I'm not building a protocol, I'm building a platform on which protocols can be implemented.
The protocol implementations will not be written in Java. They will be read from an external
source at runtime, so I need more runtime flexibility in the HTTP methods the server can process.

> 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.
