Subject [jira] [Updated] (HTTPCLIENT-1218) Serializibility of HttpCacheEntry and BufferedHeader
Date Mon, 30 Jul 2012 20:49:35 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1218?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Oleg Kalnichevski updated HTTPCLIENT-1218:
------------------------------------------

      Component/s:     (was: HttpClient)
                   Cache
    Fix Version/s: 4.3 Alpha1

BufferedHeader allows for parsing of message headers lazily only if accessed. I do not think
it would be a good idea to change that. However, it should be perfectly fine to replace the
underlying implementation with a more serialization friendly one in the caching layer prior
to serializing the message.

> Current serialization of HttpCacheEntry relies on java.io.Serializable. But not everybody
wants to rely on this RPC format, since there are better alternatives -> Kryo for example.
I tested it: once the class is registered in Kryo, serialization is 10 times faster and takes
up 4 times less bytes.
> Instances of BufferedHeader (which implements FormattedHeader) in the header group are
not serialization friendly: Factory is slow and lot's of memory is wasted to generate parsers.
> A header is a plain POJO with a name and a value, nothing more. I'm not quite sure of
the point of the FormattedHeader interface.
> - Quick fix is replacing all BufferedHeader with BasicHeader instances before serializing.
> - Long term idea suggestion: If the API wants to keep FormattedHeader would it be possible
to allow the API user to disable it?
