Subject Regression in 3.0 / Bug 59401 / Possible solutions
Date Sun, 01 May 2016 19:53:01 GMT
As you know a regression has been reported on 3.0 related to Compressed
responses management.

HC4.5.2 differs in its behaviour with 4.2.6, it removes 3 headers after
uncompressing the response:
- Content-Length
- Content-Encoding
- Content-MD5

I attached a fix to Bug 59401 that introduces a ResponseInterceptor at
first position to save initial Headers.
These headers are then used by JMeter to fill in

I don't think the fix can introduce regressions but your review is welcome
as long as alternative solutions proposals.

The drawback I see in this patch is that it introduces a new
ResponseInterceptor and saves Headers in localContext impacting slightly
memory and CPU usage.

An alternative solution, would be to modify slightly
to remove the code that removes the headers.
