Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1371) Weak ETag Validation is Useful On PUT With If-Match
Date Thu, 13 Jun 2013 18:45:21 GMT
James Leigh created HTTPCLIENT-1371:

             Summary: Weak ETag Validation is Useful On PUT With If-Match
                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1371
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1371
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: CacheHttpClient Caching components
    Affects Versions: 4.3 Beta2
            Reporter: James Leigh
             Fix For: 4.3 Beta3

RFC2616 explicitly prohibits the use of weak validators in non-GET requests, however, the
HTTPbis working group says while the limitation for weak validators on ranged requests makes
sense, weak ETag validation is useful on full non-GET requests; e.g., PUT with If-Match. When
HTTPbis working group publishes a clarification to HTTP/1.1, weak validators will be allow
for PUT and DELETE requests. HttpClient should make this an config option until HTTP/1.1 is
officially clarified.
