Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCORE-381) Missing HttpContext in HttpAsyncRequestHandlerMapper
Date Fri, 16 May 2014 22:30:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCORE-381?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14000416#comment-14000416

Tobias Bieniek commented on HTTPCORE-381:

"Are we only trying to avoid an additional regex match operation here?"

Technically yes. Although it is a bit more complicated as the handler would need to know about
the specific regex that caused the mapper to select the handler. If a handler is registered
for several different regexes things would get more complicated...

> It is a common use case to use a custom HttpAsyncRequestHandlerMapper implementation
to match the URLs against a list of regular expressions. Often these regular expressions include
capture groups that can be used to extract parameters from the URL.
> In `/user/(\d+)/profile` for example the group can be extracted and converted to an integer.
While the HttpAsyncRequestHandlerMapper implementation already does the regex matching, it
has no place to save the matching results since the HttpContext is not passed to the mapper.
> The naive way to fix this is to include the HttpContext in the lookup() method interface,
but unfortunately that would be a breaking change. I hope that someone is able to come up
with a better solution for this.
> This issue is to some degree related to https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCORE-308
