Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1447) Clients created with HttpClients.createMinimal do not work with absolute URIs
Date Wed, 15 Jan 2014 14:07:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1447?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13872095#comment-13872095
] 

Joseph Walton commented on HTTPCLIENT-1447:
-------------------------------------------

Thanks; I hadn't realised this was mandatory, but the spec's pretty clear:

http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec5.html#sec5.1.2
    "all HTTP/1.1 servers MUST accept the absoluteURI form in requests"

Although, complicating things, the current httpbis draft states:

http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-httpbis-p1-messaging-25#section-5.3
    "When
    making a request directly to an origin server, other than a CONNECT
    or server-wide OPTIONS request (as detailed below), a client MUST
    send only the absolute path and query components of the target URI as
    the request-target."

> An HttpClient created with HttpClients.createMinimal does not obey the general API contract
of accepting an HttpUriRequest with an absolute URL. Specifically, this case:
>     HttpClients.createMinimal().execute(new HttpGet("http://localhost:8080/resource"));
> would send the request:
>     GET http://localhost:8080/resource HTTP/1.1
> rather than the expected:
>     GET /resource HTTP/1.1
> The fix is to perform rewriting in MinimalClientExec.
