Class HttpClientBuilder

java.lang.Object
net.shibboleth.utilities.java.support.httpclient.HttpClientBuilder
Direct Known Subclasses:
FileCachingHttpClientBuilder, InMemoryCachingHttpClientBuilder

public class HttpClientBuilder
extends Object
Builder used to construct HttpClient objects configured with particular settings.

When using the single-arg constructor variant to wrap an existing instance of HttpClientBuilder, there are several caveats of which to be aware:

  • Instances of the following which are set as the default instance on the Apache builder will be unconditionally overwritten by this builder when buildClient() is called:
    • RequestConfig
    • ConnectionConfig

    This is due to the unfortunate fact that the Apache builder does not currently provide accessor methods to obtain the default instances currently set on the builder. Therefore, if you need to set any default request or connection config parameters which are not exposed by this builder, then you must use the Apache builder directly and may not use this builder.

  • If this builder's connectionDisregardTLSCertificate is set to true, then any value previously set via the Apache builder's HttpClientBuilder.setSSLSocketFactory(org.apache.http.conn.socket.LayeredConnectionSocketFactory) will be unconditionally overwritten.
  • If this builder is supplied with a connectionProxyHost, connectionProxyUsername and connectionProxyPassword, then any value previously set via the Apache builder's HttpClientBuilder.setDefaultCredentialsProvider(CredentialsProvider) will be unconditionally overwritten.
  • Per the Apache builder's Javadoc, if a non-null instance of HttpClientConnectionManager is set on the Apache builder via HttpClientBuilder.setConnectionManager(org.apache.http.conn.HttpClientConnectionManager), this supersedes various other properties set on the Apache builder. This includes the following instances/properties on the Apache builder:
    • SSLSocketFactory (LayeredConnectionSocketFactory)
    • SSLContext
    • HostnameVerifier
    • SocketConfig
    • ConnectionConfig
    • maxConnTotal
    • maxConnPerRoute

    Similarly, the following setters on this builder will become ineffective when a non-null connection manger is set on the Apache builder:

    Therefore, if you need to explicitly supply a connection manager instance to the Apache builder (for example in order to be able to use IdleConnectionSweeper), then you must supply these properties or instances directly to the connection manager rather than to this builder or the Apache builder.

  • Similar to the above issue, setting an explicit SSLSocketFactory on the Apache builder will supersede the following Apache builder properties:
