Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-816) HttClient should support Accept-Encoding: gzip out of the box
Date Fri, 24 Feb 2017 14:35:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-816?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15882788#comment-15882788

Serena commented on HTTPCLIENT-816:

Yes, this was needed.

LOVE it when software purists get knocked down a peg ("boo hoo we're not a browser!"). They
think they know what a product "should be" but don't know what the market actually wants/needs.
I am so. glad. that software developers are not C-suite decision makers.

> I think HttpClient really ought to support Accept-Encoding: gzip without requiring any
effort from the client developer. Allowing Content-Encoding: gzip responses can be a great
bandwidth saver.
> But it also needs to cater for developers that have coded their own solution to this
