Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1291) The HttpGet() and likely other method objects should accept only absoluteURI with path specified

Bronislav Gabrhelík created HTTPCLIENT-1291:

             Summary: The HttpGet() and likely other method objects should accept only absoluteURI
with path specified 
                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1291
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1291
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: HttpClient
    Affects Versions: 4.2.2
         Environment: JRE 1.6.23, Windows 7
            Reporter: Bronislav Gabrhelík

Current HttpGet ctor accepts the absoluteURI without  specified path i.e. just with schema
& authority specified. It is somehow handled in the client (on different layer) so request
GET is sent with the absolute root path specified. e.g. "GET / HTTP/1.1". The problem is that
the HttpGet() constructed by that way doesn't work when the HttpClient is configured with
the HTTP proxy. In that case is generated GET request with absolute URI but without the ending
slash. e.g "GET http://www.apache.org HTTP/1.1". This is an inconsistent behavior.

Expected behavior:
GET method doesn't make sense without the path specified, so at least one slash should be
specified. It concerns also other method objects like HttpPut(), HttpDelete(), etc. I don't
think it is a general rule to be applied into HttpUriRequest, but maybe I am wrong.

HttpGet req = new HttpGet("http://www.apache.org"); // this URI is wrong
HttpGet req = new HttpGet("http://www.apache.org/"); // URI is O.K.
