Subject RE: resolve HTTP URI with Proxy and auth. (C version)
Date Wed, 29 Dec 2004 14:54:12 GMT
Hello Berin,

yes, that's what I want to do.
What you suggest sounds like a possible solution:
At the beginning I create my own Resolver object and pass all required
info (URIs plus UserId,Password, etc.) to it. Then later during signing,
the instance will check which info to resolve is required for which URI.
That should work.

Thanks,
	Dieter

Ouch.  The C library is very dumb where it comes to the resolver - it
takes one and just uses it whenever it needs to resolve a URI.

Just so I'm sure of the problem scope - you are trying to use a
different resolution method for different URIs within different
references in a single signature?

You could build something "clever" into the resolver to do different
things depending on the URI passed.

The Java library has a much nicer resolver implementation, where there
is effectively a list of resolovers.  Each is asked "can you resolve
this URI" and if the answer is yes, is requested to do so.  The C++
library did something similar for Algorithm mapping, but I've never gone
back to refactor the code for the URI resolver to be more clever.

Effectively - building your own clever resolver would do the same thing
as the Java library.

Not much help I fear.

Cheers,
	Berin
