Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1207) Improve extensibility of DefaultHttpRequestRetryHandler
Date Tue, 19 Jun 2012 13:15:43 GMT
Joshua Spiewak created HTTPCLIENT-1207:
------------------------------------------

             Summary: Improve extensibility of DefaultHttpRequestRetryHandler
                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1207
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1207
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: HttpClient
    Affects Versions: 4.2 Final
            Reporter: Joshua Spiewak
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: Enable_sub-classes_to_modify_the_set_of_exceptions_that_are_rejected_for_retry.patch

Under certain circumstances, such as when a service is behind a load balancer, it is desirable
for a client to retry a request after timeout, rather than simply extending the timeout. This
would allow the client to connect to a different service behind the load balancer.

Currently DefaultHttpRequestRetryHandler rejects four types of Exceptions for retry, including
InterruptedIOException, the parent class of SocketTimeoutException. The attached patch collects
the Exceptions into a Set, and exposes the Set to sub-classes. This should allow sub-classes
to remove InterruptedIOException if they see fit, but still get the benefits of the other
logic in retryRequest, without copying the entire class.
