Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1124) Can't send request body with HTTP methods other than POST and PUT
Date Thu, 08 Sep 2011 07:33:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1124?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13100130#comment-13100130
] 

Alexey Levan commented on HTTPCLIENT-1124:
------------------------------------------

But in RFC 2616 all methods can have an entity (see above).  Which is confirmed by one of
HTTP authors (see above). So I think it's about time to change HttpClient.

 The HTTP spec doesn't prohibit that (AFAIK, even GET requests with body are allowed), and
any spec-compliant implementation shouldn't do it either.  I suggest merging HttpEntityEnclosingRequestBase
with HttpRequestBase, since there's really no reason to make this artifical restriction.
