Thank you and ECF team!
Our p2 based product will start to adopt to httpclient4, we have tests
to download lots of files from cloud service. I will report it if any
regression issue is found.

Hi p2 team,
ECF has an enhancement request to create a filetransfer provider based

Thanks to the ECF contributors and committers, we have this provider
working, and we are now building it and testing it with the ECF
filetransfer test suite (we run this against all providers).
We would like to have p2/Eclipse eventually use this provider...or
course after thorough regression testing...as well as testing against
proxy configurations (e.g. NTLM2). We think that the
httpclient4-based provider will be a much better base to go forward

under active development and maintenance, while httpclient 3.1 is not
To do this transition, however, we will need some help and cooperation
from the p2 committers and/or community over this coming fall and
winter. Assuming this fits in with p2's plans...Ian, Pascal, or
others...please let me know how best to coordinate/accomplish this
