Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1607) Change ContextAwareAuthScheme.authenticate to return a HeaderGroup instead of a single Header

------------------------------------------

             Summary: Change ContextAwareAuthScheme.authenticate to return a HeaderGroup instead
of a single Header
                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1607
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1607
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: HttpClient
    Affects Versions: 4.3.6
            Reporter: Marcos Scriven
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 4.4 Final


While writing a custom `AuthScheme`, I needed to add multiple headers to the request.

This is of course possible just by directly adding them to the request available as a parameter,
but then it makes the return value rather arbitrary. Returning null seems to work, and is
just silently ignored.

I think it would be more flexible to change the interface to return a `HeaderGroup`.

I guess an alternative would be to write a custom filter somewhere, but that wouldn't tie
in nicely with authentication caches and user credentials automatically being applied according
to the host route.
