Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1601) Tutorial claims that PUT is not idempotent
Date Sun, 25 Jan 2015 20:20:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1601?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14291252#comment-14291252
] 

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-1601:
-----------------------------------------------

The decision to not automatically retry any entity enclosing requests including PUT goes back
to the days of HC 2.0 and predates even my involvement with the project. It was a conscious
decision to keep things the same way in HC 4.0, and not a defect. The tutorial describes that
HttpClient does rather what RFC 2616 says. You are very welcome to rephrase or improve that
particular statement you deem fit, by the way.

> Open up [chapter 1.4.2|http://hc.apache.org/httpcomponents-client-ga/tutorial/html/fundamentals.html#d5e280],
it says that {{PUT}} is not idempotent. This clearly violates [RFC 7231, section 4.2.2|http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7231#section-4.2.2].
It should be checked whether this is just a documentation flaw or even maybe an implemenation
flaw.
