Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1089) HTTP Client does not handle 302 redirect in POST request
Date Fri, 13 May 2011 22:10:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1089?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13033337#comment-13033337

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-1089:


HttpClient already suffers from over-use (or abuse) of configuration parameters. One can still
override the default behavior of HttpClient by providing a custom RedirectStrategy specifically
tailed for a particular application, if desired.

You are very welcome to contribute a RedirectStrategy implementation that mimics the behavior
of popular web browser one could plug-in instead of the default implementation. I believe
that would be a better way of solving the problem.

> POST requests are not being automatically redirected after receiving 302 response.
> This is because there is a statement in the DefaultRedirectStrategy class:
> 82:        case HttpStatus.SC_MOVED_TEMPORARILY:
> 83:            return (method.equalsIgnoreCase(HttpGet.METHOD_NAME)
> 84:                || method.equalsIgnoreCase(HttpHead.METHOD_NAME)) && locationHeader
!= null;
> Which means that only HEAD and GET requests are being redirected. In my opinion all requests
should be redirected, not only these two types.
> This should be:
> 82:        case HttpStatus.SC_MOVED_TEMPORARILY:
> 83:            return locationHeader != null;
> After receiving 302 status for POST request new GET request should be send to Location
URI. Internet browsers works in the same way.
