Subject Which version of HttpClient? (was RE: [GUMP] Build Failure - jakarta-cactus-framework-12)
Date Sun, 06 Jul 2003 10:41:21 GMT
What do we do? Do we try to keep up with HttpClient from CVS HEAD
knowing they will break API compatibility? This would mean that persons
who download Cactus 1.5 will need to get a "CVS HEAD version" of
HttpClient (we are bundling it of course).

Or do we modify the Gump setup so that nightly builds of cactus are
performed against the 2.0 branch of HttpClient and wait for a first
alpha release of the next version of HttpClient?

The third solution (which is a bit of work) is to have an adapter class
providing compatibility between HttpClient 2.0 and HttpClient from CVS
HEAD.

What do you think?

At this point in time, my personal feeling is that we should provide
HttpClient 2.0 compatibility as this is what everyone will be using
(either by using the 2.0 version or through the adapter stuff).

Thanks
-Vincent
