Subject Understanding and configuring in HttpAsyncClient 4.0-beta4
Date Fri, 18 Oct 2013 04:46:02 GMT
Hello Mates,

1. In RequestConfig: What is the difference between ConnectTimeout and ConnectionRequestTimeout
From quick look at code - I concluded that ConnectTimeout is "timeout when client tries to
connect to server" and ConnectionRequestTimeout is "timeout when request can be considered

2. How can I set connection manager timeout ? This time out implies if all connections are
busy/leased, it will wait for specified time in queue before returning timeout error. Please
correct if my understanding is wrong.
 Previously I used httpparams to do that. But now httpparams seems to be have deprecated.
// timeout waiting for a connection from the connection manager. 
httpParams.setParameter("http.connection-manager.timeout", (int) config.getConnectionManagerTimeout()

3. How can I set HttpVersion ?
HttpProtocolParams.setVersion(httpParams, HttpVersion.HTTP_1_1);

4. Also I noticed that socket/connection timeouts are configured at multiple places. Hence
would like to make sure what is best practice to configure them. Should we set at all below
3 places ?
1. IOReactorConfig has sockettimeout and connection timeout 
2. SocketConfig which can be set to PoolingNHttpClientConnectionManager
3. RequestConfig - also has both Socket and Connection timeout setting.


PoolingNHttpClientConnectionManager connectionManager;
try {
    DefaultConnectingIOReactor ioreactor = new DefaultConnectingIOReactor();
    connectionManager = new PoolingNHttpClientConnectionManager(ioreactor);
} catch (IOReactorException e) {
    throw new RuntimeException(e);

SocketConfig socketConfig = SocketConfig.custom().setSoTimeout((int) config.getSocketTimeOut().toMillis()).setTcpNoDelay(true).build();
ConnectionConfig connectionConfig = ConnectionConfig.custom().setCharset(Charset.forName("UTF-8")).build();
RequestConfig requestConfig = RequestConfig.custom().setCircularRedirectsAllowed(true)
        .setConnectTimeout((int) config.getConnectionTimeOut().toMillis())
        .setConnectionRequestTimeout((int) config.getConnectionTimeOut().toMillis())
        .setSocketTimeout((int) config.getSocketTimeOut().toMillis())


HttpAsyncClientBuilder asyncHttpClientBuilder = HttpAsyncClientBuilder.create();
HttpAsyncClient client = asyncHttpClientBuilder.build();
