Subject ConnectException not handled in DefaultHttpMethodRetryHandler
Date Mon, 27 Oct 2008 14:18:41 GMT

i am using commons-httpclient.3.0.1 and I am sending some requests
through https protocol. I have a problem with a long creation of
connection if ip address of remote service is not existing. I think
problem is in the situation when https connection is not created and
ConnectException is thrown after connection timeout. This exception is
catched in HttpMethodDirector.java in method executeWithRetry. Then
the DefaultHttpMethodRetryHandler is called to recognize whether
connection creation will be repeated or not.
I think, that special handling for ConnectException is missing in
retryMethod of DefaultHttpMethodRetryHandler, because exception is not
recognized and connetions are created again.
On the other hand, ConnectTimeoutException is thrown after connection
timeout for HTTP. This exception is handled in
DefaultHttpMethodRetryHandler and call is stopped.

These lines of code handle ConnectTimeoutException in retryMethod of
if (exception instanceof InterruptedIOException) {
            // Timeout
            return false;

Probably this is missing for ConnectException:
if (exception instanceof InterruptedIOException || exception
instanceof ConnectException) {
            // Timeout
            return false;

Or is this problem handled in next versions? (I tried v3.1 and same problem)
