Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1864) [OSGi] Allow to configure the OSGi client default timeouts
Date Fri, 04 Aug 2017 09:08:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1864?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16114151#comment-16114151

Timothee Maret commented on HTTPCLIENT-1864:

Thanks [~olegk] for your input. I agree, there's already a client builder configurator. 
However, I think we still miss a way to configure default for the client in a central way,
similarly to what exists for the proxy configuration.

Thanks [~jsedding] for sharing, I'll have a look.

>             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: HttpClient (classic)
>    Affects Versions: 4.5
>            Reporter: Timothee Maret

>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: Stuck
> The OSGI HTTP client currently comes with default connection and socket timeouts.
> The default timeouts are infinite values. Those infinite timeouts imply that a failing
connection may hang forever wasting the associated resources and potentially causing the process
to stop with hardly reproducible issues.
> There already is a way to configure the timeouts per client instance. This approach provides
a great flexibility but it comes at the cost of I. tedious and error prone configurations,
II. not solving the issue once for all (new components may forget to add support for timeouts).
> Allowing to configure the default globally or via the factory configuration (with defaults)
would give a simpler configuration overall and inherit the configurable default to all consumers
of the client.
> This improvement shall only applies to the OSGI client.
