Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1362) Confusing message in HttpHostConnectException
Date Fri, 31 May 2013 18:32:19 GMT
Sergey B. created HTTPCLIENT-1362:

             Summary: Confusing message in HttpHostConnectException
                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1362
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1362
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: HttpClient
            Reporter: Sergey B.
            Priority: Trivial

TCP connection can fail with two different kind of errors: 'Connection timed' out and 'Connection
refused'. When a connection error occurs HttpClient catches SocketException and replaces it
with HttpHostConnectException. In addition to exception class it replaces exception message,
changing original text with 'Connection to ... refused'. This message is confusing because
it looks very much like SocketException 'Connection refused', but in fact it hides original
'Connection timed out'.

Consider using different messages in HttpHostConnectException depending on parent exception.
