Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1358) MainClientExec Does Too Much
Date Wed, 29 May 2013 14:35:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1358?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13669299#comment-13669299

James Leigh commented on HTTPCLIENT-1358:

I was just trying to reduce code duplication between my project and httpclient. In my project,
I want to support authentication over non-socket connections. This was my motivation for moving
the authentication related code out of MainClientExec to HttpAuthenticator. This patch allows
me to reuse the authentication code in my project for non-socket connections.

> MainClientExec directs the route, establishes connections, handles target authentication
and handles proxy authentication. It is involved with both the connection/route management
and the authentication semantics.
> It is currently too hard to intercept/handle httpclient requests without serializing
them in a socket first. If the authentication was handled in a different class, then the connection
route/timeout management, it would be easier to provide custom handling on the client side
using the complete request (including auth headers).
