Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1202) ResponseCachingPolicy should honor explicit cache-control directives for non-recognized status codes
Date Wed, 06 Jun 2012 20:17:23 GMT
Joshua Spiewak created HTTPCLIENT-1202:
------------------------------------------

             Summary: ResponseCachingPolicy should honor explicit cache-control directives
for non-recognized status codes
                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1202
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1202
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Cache
    Affects Versions: 4.2 Final, 4.1.3
            Reporter: Joshua Spiewak


>From my reading of [rfc2616 section 13.4|http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec13.html#sec13.4],
I see a list of response codes that MAY be stored. These correspond to the codes that ResponseCachingPolicy
checks. However, the last paragraph of the section states that other status codes MUST NOT
be returned *unless* there are cache-control directives. In my case, I am setting Cache-Control:
max-age=xxxx and as such I would expect the response to be cached.

The return statement of ResponseCachingPolicy.isResponseCacheable looks like it was meant
to take into account explicit cache control directives, but I think that return is only ever
reached when cacheable is set to true, and is essentially not used.

Would it be possible to enhance ResponseCachingPolicy to handle this? If not, would it be
possible to make the choice of response caching policy configurable/extensible/pluggable?
