Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1123) Implement a way to override or resolve DNS entries defined in the OS
Date Fri, 02 Sep 2011 19:15:09 GMT
Implement a way to override or resolve DNS entries defined in the OS
--------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1123
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1123
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: HttpClient
            Reporter: Alin Vasile
            Priority: Minor


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.
