Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-5590) SolrJ is still on httpcomponents/httpclient version 4.2.x, which has some problems
Date Thu, 02 Jan 2014 15:14:51 GMT


Shawn Heisey commented on SOLR-5590:

I checked the committer list for the project, and [] didn't show up
there.  I'm willing to work with Karl and get this change committed.  I need a few hours before
I can work on it, so if someone else has the time right now, feel free to take over.

Another potential reason for someone else to take over, unless Karl already knows what to
do:  This change definitely means that SolrJ is using deprecated classes.  I'd like to eliminate
the deprecated classes, but that might require a completely new issue.  I already tried once
to use the new Builder classes in my own SolrJ code, but found that SolrJ didn't like it for
some reason.

>         Attachments: SOLR-5590.patch
> SolrJ depends on HttpClient 4.2.x right now, but HttpClient 4.2.x has issues that the
ManifoldCF team encountered with handling of form data encoding - issues which are addressed
in HttpClient 4.3.x.  We developed a local patch, but Solr will eventually need to go to the
new client.  (ManifoldCF would plan to follow shortly thereafter).
> I tried to get Oleg (PMC chair of HttpComponents) to agree to port the fixed code to
the 4.2.x stream but he did not want to do that.  So I believe that that avenue is closed.
> See CONNECTORS-623 for a detailed description of the problem.
