Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] HttpComponents HttpCore 4.2.3 GA Released
Date Sun, 02 Dec 2012 15:05:52 GMT
The Apache HttpComponents project is pleased to announce release 4.2.3
(GA) of HttpComponents HttpCore. This is a maintenance release that
fixes a number of bugs found since 4.2.2 including a major bug in the
NIO module that can cause an infinite loop in SSL sessions under special
circumstances when the remote peer terminates the session in the middle
of SSL handshake. Please note this issue does not affect blocking I/O
components used by Apache HttpClient.

We advise users of HttpCore NIO of all versions to upgrade.

About HttpComponents Core - HttpCore is a set of low level HTTP
transport components that can be used to build custom client and server
side HTTP services with a minimal footprint. HttpCore supports two I/O
models: a blocking I/O model based on the classic Java I/O and a
non-blocking, event driven I/O model based on Java NIO. The blocking I/O
model may be more appropriate for data intensive, low latency scenarios,
whereas the non-blocking model may be more appropriate for high latency
scenarios where raw data throughput is less important than the ability
to handle thousands of simultaneous HTTP connections in a resource
efficient manner.
