Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1123) Implement a way to override or resolve DNS entries defined in the OS
Date Sun, 04 Sep 2011 17:59:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1123?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13096913#comment-13096913

Alin Vasile commented on HTTPCLIENT-1123:
-----------------------------------------

Thanks for the review. In the initial proof-of-concept I didn't wanted to touch the existing
API, so I extended the classes where I plugged in the new functionality.

I attached a new patch incorporating all your comments.

> 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.
