Subject [jira] Created: (HTTPCLIENT-1000) Configure Maximum Connection Lifetimes
Date Tue, 21 Sep 2010 20:03:34 GMT
Configure Maximum Connection Lifetimes

                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1000
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1000
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: HttpClient
            Reporter: Michajlo Matijkiw

Provide a means of configuring a maximum lifetime for HttpClient connections.  Currently,
it would appear as long as a connection is used it may persist indefinitely.

This would be useful for situations where HttpClient needs to react DNS changes, such as the
 - HttpClient maintains connections to example.com which resolves to IP A
 - Machine at IP A fails, and example.com now resolves to backup machine at IP B
 - Since IP A is failing, connections are destroyed, and new connections are made to IP B
 - Machine at IP A recovers, but HttpClient maintains connections to IP B since the connections
are still healthy

The desired behavior would be that connections to IP B will reach their connection lifetime,
and new connections could be created back to IP A according to the updated DNS settings.
