Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1248) LaxRedirectStrategy converts POST to GET
Date Wed, 10 Oct 2012 00:02:02 GMT
Justus Pendleton created HTTPCLIENT-1248:

             Summary: LaxRedirectStrategy converts POST to GET
                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1248
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1248
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Justus Pendleton

The LaxRedirectStrategy extends the DefaultRedirectStrategy. The DefaultAsyncRequestDirector
calls _redirectStrategy.isRedirected()_ and LaxRedirectStrategy will return *true* on a POST.
Then the director calls _redirectStrategy.getRedirect()_. The LaxRedirectStrategy doesn't
implement this method so the one in the DefaultRedirectStrategy is called:

        if (method.equalsIgnoreCase(HttpHead.METHOD_NAME)) {
            return new HttpHead(uri);
        } else {
            return new HttpGet(uri);

This turns the POST into a GET on redirect. IMHO the LaxRedirectStrategy should be

    public HttpUriRequest getRedirect(
            final HttpRequest request,
            final HttpResponse response,
            final HttpContext context) throws ProtocolException {
        URI uri = getLocationURI(request, response, context);
        String method = request.getRequestLine().getMethod();
        if (method.equalsIgnoreCase(HttpHead.METHOD_NAME)) {
            return new HttpHead(uri);
        else if (method.equalsIgnoreCase(HttpPost.METHOD_NAME)) {
            return new HttpPost(uri);
        } else if (method.equalsIgnoreCase(HttpGet.METHOD_NAME)) {
            return new HttpGet(uri);
        } else {
            throw new IllegalStateException("Redirect called on un-redirectable http method:
" + method);
