Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1828) HttpDelete does not extend HttpEntityEnclosingRequestBase

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

Gary
I will not stand in your way but let me re-iterate the same things I have been saying over
and over again when this subject pops up

# DELETE request with body are monumentally *stupid*
# People who insist on doing stupid things have an easy way of doing it with a few lines of
custom code
# HttpClient 4.x conforms to RFC 2616 only. It does not conform to later revisions of the
protocol
# RFC 2616 states clearly and unambiguously that only PUT and POST requests can enclose body
# Allowing DELETE requests to enclose body and not doing likewise for GET and other method
would not only be silly but also contradictory.

> 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.
