Subject re: http headers
Date Thu, 12 Sep 2002 12:17:15 GMT

If the intent is for the HTTP client component by the Apache group to be
the single entry point on the client side, I'm all for it.  It has been
tedious to maintain two sets of similar changes between XmlRpcClient and
XmlRpcClientLite.  While the interceptors patch may be large, the patch I
posted yesterday is smaller and includes code which accumulates and reads
headers on both the client (both clients) and server side.  Does Apache
have an HTTP server component that also returns headers?  It's all fine
and good to be able to modify headers on the client side...but something
needs to read them on the server side also.  You are right, the
headers/XmlRpcRequest issue, introspection, and interceptors are somewhat
orthogonal...it just so happened that code in my interceptors patch also
added the ability for modification of headers...this can of course be done
independently of interceptors.

Hi, I have read your responses in this thread and previous ones
suggesting interceptors as a solution to some HTTP header problems.
 However, the interceptors patch is fairly large, and in the same or
less amount code changes I can drop in an actively maintained HTTP
client component by the Apache group.  I don't know enough about your
patch to be +1 or -1, but I think it solves a different problem than the
one I am working on.  I apologize for letting your previous posts go
