Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1581) change scope of ContentResponseHandler or provide an alternative
Date Fri, 21 Nov 2014 17:55:36 GMT
Shaun A Elliott created HTTPCLIENT-1581:

             Summary: change scope of ContentResponseHandler or provide an alternative
                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1581
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1581
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Fluent HC
            Reporter: Shaun A Elliott

As a developer using the apache fluent hc library I need to be able to get back both the http
status code and the http response body. 

When I try to do this now, I get an exception that "Response content has been already consumed".

The only way to get around this is to go back to the non-fluent api and get the HttpResponse,
pull the entity, check it, etc. This is already done in ContentResponseHandler and is a clear
DRY violation. 

It would be much cleaner to expose ContentResponseHandler as a public class, so that it can
be overriden, called from handleContent, etc. Or to add a new ResponseHandler that also provides
other details like the response code.

Consider these stackoverflow questions as I'm not the only one who desires this:
