Thank you Scott!

Can you also update the documentation:

or, if you agree with me, I can update it with the following lines of
the example codes:

<bean id="MyHTTPClient" class="shibboleth.HttpClientFactory"

<bean id="MyHTTPClient" class="shibboleth.FileCachingHttpClientFactory"


<bean id="MyHTTPClient" parent="shibboleth.HttpClientFactory"

<bean id="MyHTTPClient" parent="shibboleth.FileCachingHttpClientFactory"

Now the code... works!

Best Regards,
