Re: [ecf-dev] An interesting usecase

I was not thinking about  adding an API, rather I wanted to make sure that
the API being used from the underlying provider (httpclient in the http
case) was supporting redirection.

The ECF FileTransfer API is currently 'blind' to redirects.  If the
underlying provider (e.g. Apache httpclient 3.0.1) understands redirects
and handles them properly/automatically then all would be well (the
current ECF provider using httpclient...i.e.
org.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer.httpclient does *not* handle
redirects in this manner...but it *could* because the httpclient impl
allows/supports this...it just doesn't yet check for redirect
response)...then all would be well.

We could also add new events to the API to support interactively making
a decision on redirects (e.g. IFileTransferRetrieveRedirectEvent), but
to this point this hasn't come up as a requirement so we've not
introduced it.
