Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1828) HttpDelete does not extend HttpEntityEnclosingRequestBase
Date Mon, 13 Mar 2017 15:19:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1828?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15907643#comment-15907643

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-1828:

Hi Gary
Clirr check will likely pass as {{HttpDelete}} has been made to implement an optional interface.
The problem is that if released in a patch release (like 4.5.4) API visible changes automatically
become a part of the public APIs without any chance of being revised or corrected in case
of compatibility problems or user feedback. We have already done a number of such changes
in the 4.5 release series, but changing {HttpGet}} to extend {{HttpEntityEnclosingRequestBase}}
would be too big to just sneak in and hope that no one notices.

No need to rush it, though. Not until you are back home.

> Sending body in DELETE is allowed as the HTTP 1.1 specification does not forbid. Hence
HttpDelete.class should extend from HttpEntityEnclosingRequestBase instead of HttpRequestBase.
