Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1124) Can't send request body with HTTP methods other than POST and PUT
Date Thu, 08 Sep 2011 12:02:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1124?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13100248#comment-13100248

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

Oleg, what you are saying is simply not true. I've already showed autoritative opinion on
that matter several times. Roy Fielding, author of the RFC 2616, says that GET requests with
body can be constructed. And yet you are saying that he is wrong, and you are right. It's
a shame for a http client author to be less informed about http than library users.

 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.
