Subject [ANNOUNCE] Plan for disruptive changes to Jackrabbit WebDAV library
Date Wed, 26 Oct 2016 13:13:29 GMT
Hi there,

context: <https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-2406>

Summary: we want to get rid of our dependency of httpclient 3.* 
(<http://hc.apache.org/httpclient-3.x/>), which as been end-of-lifed 
quite some time ago.

This will affect our public API, which extends classes from it.

The current plan is to add a new set of APIs (probably based on 
HttpClient 4.5.x) in the next stable Jackrabbit release 2.14, planned to 
be released in Spring 2017. At that point, we'll also deprecate the old 

Later on, we would *remove* the httpclient 3.x dependency and the old 
classes -- the plan would be to do that in the subsequent stable 
release: Jackrabbit 2.16, which could come out in Spring 2018.

At that point, users of the old API can:

- either continue using Jackrabbit 2.14.*, or

- update their own code to work with Jackrabbit 2.16.*.

Feedback appreciated -- either here, or in 

Best regards, Julian
