Subject [jira] [Created] (LIBCLOUD-457) Reset "context" attribute on the connection class after the request finished
Date Sat, 07 Dec 2013 17:53:35 GMT

-------------------------------------

             Summary: Reset "context" attribute on the connection class after the request
finished
                 Key: LIBCLOUD-457
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LIBCLOUD-457
             Project: Libcloud
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core
            Reporter: Tomaz Muraus
            Priority: Minor


"context" attribute on the connection class is there to allow developers to save temporary
data on the connection class for the duration of a request.

It's commonly used and accessed in places such as "parse_body" and "parse_error".

Because of the oversight, this attribute is currently not reset after the request has finished
and the value of context is available across multiple requests.

This is bad and in-directly encourages bad practices like persisting some state across multiple
requests.

The goal of this issue is to fix that and reset the context after the request has finished.
We will also need to update the affected code, because sadly, some drivers rely on this broken
and bad behavior.
