FYI, in order to support Henrich's work* on an httpclient-based http
server, today I've added two new test plugins:
(this contains code from the apache httpclient 3.0.1 'tests/src' directory)
(this is initially empty...Henrich will be providing code for this
soon...so that we can have tests of the http filetransfer that use a
'faulty' server...i.e. to simulate server and/or network failures, as
well as slow servers etc).
So soon we will need to include these bundles in the automated tests (as
other automated tests that Henrich is working on will use this code).
But we don't need to actually run these automated tests yet (they are
intended as test support bundles).
*Henrich Kraemer from IBM is now going to be contributing work on the
filetransfer API and httpclient provider (at least)...with code to
support immediately responsive cancellation, more sophisticated
authentication, more filetransfer testing (with faulty/slow
servers)...in order to increase the robustness of the httpclient-based
filetransfer provider in support of Galileo. Please welcome Henrich to
the team...and I'll speak for everyone to say: thanks Henrich (and IBM)
for contributing to ECF!!
