Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1837) HttpClient-Win: Move WinHttpClients to subpackage
Date Mon, 03 Apr 2017 11:47:42 GMT
Carsten Reckord created HTTPCLIENT-1837:

             Summary: HttpClient-Win: Move WinHttpClients to subpackage
                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1837
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1837
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: HttpClient (classic)
    Affects Versions: 4.5.3
         Environment: HttpClient 4.5.3
HttpClient-Win 4.5.3
            Reporter: Carsten Reckord

Please move org.apache.http.impl.client.WinHttpClients to a separate package (e.g. org.apache.http.impl.client.win.WinHttpClients).

HttpClient-Win 5.0alpha already moves all code to a unique package of its own. It would be
great to do the same in 4.5.x releases. 

Background: I'm trying to consume HttpClient-Win in an OSGi environment by converting it into
an OSGi bundle. This is made difficult because it exposes the same package org.apache.http.impl.client
as the main HttpClient, which is problematic in OSGi, especially since users will often want
to consume both packages.

It should be fine to just deprecate the old class in favor of the moved one - this gives us
the opportunity in OSGi to simply consume the new package and ignore the old one (or even
not export it).
