[jira] [Resolved] (AXIS2-5898) Axis2 uses old version of HTTPClient/HTTPComponent Java library

JIRA jira@apache.org

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AXIS2-5898?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Andreas Veithen resolved AXIS2-5898.
    Resolution: Incomplete

Sorry, but this issue is totally unactionable:
* The issue description is about version incompatibilities but then doesn't mention the actual versions involved, neither of Axis2 nor of HTTPClient.
* There is a confusion here because some of the updates seem to ignore the fact that Commons HTTPClient (aka HTTPClient 3) and HTTPClient 4 use different Java packages and therefore can't be in conflict with each other. In particular, it's not clear what the problem with SAML would be.
* Axis2 1.7 depends on Commons HTTPClient 3.1, which is already the latest version from that branch.
* As noted in the release notes, Axis2 1.7 has an implementation of the HTTP transport that uses HTTPClient 4, but it's optional. In that sense, the upgrade to HTTPClient 4 has already happened.

>             Project: Axis2

> Hello,
> for work I have to access grib2 file subsets via OPeNDAP with climate data using Matlab.
> For this task we employ the Matlab toolbox nctoolbox.
> This toolbox relies on a the netCDF Java API to access container formats (e.g. hdf5, netCDF, grib2).
> The newer Versions of netCDF java use a current version of the Java library HTTPClient.
> Matlab uses (within the axis2 framework) a very old version of HTTPClient (Applications/MATLAB_R2017b.app/java/jarext/axis2/commons-httpclient.jar).
> Therefore, nctoolbox is bound to use a very old version of the netCDF Java API, to be conform with the Matlab version of HTTPClient.
> As a user this conflicting HTTPClient versions are a problem for me.
> I cannot benefit from bugfixes which were done in newer versions of netCDF Java API.
> My question is: Will axis2 be upgraded to the current version of HTTPClient in future releases ?
> Best regards
> Marius
