Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1123) Implement a way to override or resolve DNS entries defined in the OS
Date Sat, 03 Sep 2011 15:32:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1123?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13096673#comment-13096673
] 

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-1123:
-----------------------------------------------

Looks good to me. However, I think it would be slightly cleaner to provide an additional constructor
to DefaultClientConnectionOperator and PoolingClientConnectionManager that takes DnsOverrider
as an optional (nullable) parameter. I also think DnsResolver might be a better name for that
interface that DnsOverrider. Otherwise, all is good. Please go ahead and add ASL headers and
test cases. Please make sure to use spaces instead of tabs for indentation.

> When working with HttpClient in restrictive environments, where the user doesn't have
the permissisions to edit the local /etc/hosts file or the DNS configuration, can be eased
with an DNS Overrider capability. 
> This can be useful with JMeter which can follow redirects automatically and resolve some
of the redirected hosts against its configuration. Another example is a custom forward proxy,
written in Java and based on httpclient, which can be deployed is such a restricted environment
that would ease the development of various web solutions for some developers.
