Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1828) HttpDelete does not extend HttpEntityEnclosingRequestBase
Date Fri, 03 Mar 2017 09:19:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1828?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15893968#comment-15893968
] 

Sebb commented on HTTPCLIENT-1828:
----------------------------------

RFC 7231 says [1]:

{quote}
A payload within a DELETE request message has no defined semantics;
sending a payload body on a DELETE request might cause some existing
implementations to reject the request.
{quote}

AFAICT from a quick scan of 7231, the only verb that explicitly disallows a body is TRACE.
For some of the others, such as DELETE, there are no defined semantics but the body is not
disallowed.

> 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.
