Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1747) The "default request config" socket timeout is set to 0 if the deprecated HttpClientParams is used
Date Tue, 31 May 2016 06:44:12 GMT
Christoffer Eide created HTTPCLIENT-1747:

             Summary: The "default request config" socket timeout is set to 0 if the deprecated
HttpClientParams is used
                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1747
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1747
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 4.5.2
            Reporter: Christoffer Eide

We have some legacy library code that uses the http client. 

We pass in a well configured http client (with connection and socket timeouts) to the library.

The library calls the deprecated {{org.apache.http.client.params.HttpClientParams}}. This
causes the timeouts to be set to 0 when the clients tries to connect to a socket.

The library calls:
{{HttpClientParams.setRedirecting(get.getParams(), true);}}

This makes the {{org.apache.http.impl.client.InternalHttpClient#doExecute}} call {{HttpClientParamConfig.getRequestConfig(params)}}.
If {{HttpClientParamConfig}} does not find a value for the timeouts in {{params}}, it defaults
to {{0}}. Perhaps it should get those default values from the configured default request config?

There is a junit test that demonstrates the behaviour:
