Hi Bill,

Container management of Client should be optional. There's a lot of
issues involved, especially when you start dealing with HTTPS,
trust-stores, authentication, etc. that may be endpoint specific.

Can you explain how that is any different from DB connection
authentication?


I guess what I mean is, you shouldn't have to inject a Client to use
one.

+1

Although injecting a ClientFactory could be made mandatory.

I think that the per-request initialization should be allowed.
Cheers, Sergey

Can you explain the rationale behind your replies? (Not to say I disagree - 
merely try to understand)


Maybe we are missing a differentiation here between HTTP connector and User 
Agent component?

The User Agent, by its very nature being a direct implementation of client 
side expectations, is indeed no something that makes sense to be provided by 
the container. The HTTP connector however is, because it is (much like 
database connections) application agnostic.

Jan, what I mean is that there has to be no restrictions in the way one can instantiate a client withing a server application code.
If JAX-RS 2.0 supports say the injection of say ClientFactory (representing, hope I'm right here :-), the connector) then it would be OK with me, but I do not think it must be a requirement. That is, if I know it's very cheap to consume a given resource then I should be able to do within the scope of the current request:

//all within the scope of the current request
Client c = ClientFactory.newClient();
// use it

Cheers, Sergey


Makes sense?

Jan
