Class HttpAsyncRequestExecutor

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.http.nio.protocol.HttpAsyncRequestExecutor
All Implemented Interfaces:
NHttpClientEventHandler

@Immutable
public class HttpAsyncRequestExecutor
extends Object
implements NHttpClientEventHandler

HttpAsyncRequestExecutor is a fully asynchronous HTTP client side protocol handler based on the NIO (non-blocking) I/O model. HttpAsyncRequestExecutor translates individual events fired through the NHttpClientEventHandler interface into logically related HTTP message exchanges.

The caller is expected to pass an instance of HttpAsyncClientExchangeHandler to be used for the next series of HTTP message exchanges through the connection context using HTTP_HANDLER attribute. HTTP exchange sequence is considered complete when the HttpAsyncClientExchangeHandler.isDone() method returns true. The HttpAsyncRequester utility class can be used to facilitate initiation of asynchronous HTTP request execution.

Individual HttpAsyncClientExchangeHandler are expected to make use of a HttpProcessor to generate mandatory protocol headers for all outgoing messages and apply common, cross-cutting message transformations to all incoming and outgoing messages. HttpAsyncClientExchangeHandlers can delegate implementation of application specific content generation and processing to a HttpAsyncRequestProducer and a HttpAsyncResponseConsumer.

4.2

Constructor Detail

HttpAsyncRequestExecutor

public HttpAsyncRequestExecutor(int waitForContinue,
                                ExceptionLogger exceptionLogger)
Creates new instance of HttpAsyncRequestExecutor.

Parameters:
waitForContinue - wait for continue time period.
exceptionLogger - Exception logger. If null ExceptionLogger.NO_OP will be used. Please note that the exception logger will be only used to log I/O exception thrown while closing Closeable objects (such as HttpConnection).
Since:
4.4

public HttpAsyncRequestExecutor(int waitForContinue)
Creates new instance of HttpAsyncRequestExecutor.

Since:

Method Detail

connected

public void connected(NHttpClientConnection conn,
                      Object attachment)
               throws IOException,
                      HttpException
Description copied from interface: NHttpClientEventHandler
Triggered when a new outgoing connection is created.

Specified by:
connected in interface NHttpClientEventHandler
Parameters:
conn - new outgoing HTTP connection.
attachment - an object that was attached to the session request
Throws:
IOException
HttpException

closed

public void closed(NHttpClientConnection conn)
Description copied from interface: NHttpClientEventHandler
Triggered when the connection is closed.

Specified by:
closed in interface NHttpClientEventHandler
Parameters:
conn - closed HTTP connection.

exception

public void exception(NHttpClientConnection conn,
                      Exception cause)
Description copied from interface: NHttpClientEventHandler
Triggered if an error occurs during the HTTP exchange.

Specified by:
exception in interface NHttpClientEventHandler
Parameters:
conn - HTTP connection that caused an I/O error
cause - exception

requestReady

public void requestReady(NHttpClientConnection conn)
                  throws IOException,
                         HttpException
Description copied from interface: NHttpClientEventHandler
Triggered when the connection is ready to accept a new HTTP request. The protocol handler does not have to submit a request if it is not ready.

Specified by:
requestReady in interface NHttpClientEventHandler
Parameters:
conn - HTTP connection that is ready to accept a new HTTP request.
Throws:
IOException
HttpException
See Also:
NHttpClientConnection

outputReady

public void outputReady(NHttpClientConnection conn,
                        ContentEncoder encoder)
                 throws IOException,
                        HttpException
Description copied from interface: NHttpClientEventHandler
Triggered when the underlying channel is ready for writing a next portion of the request entity through the corresponding content encoder.

If the content producer is unable to generate outgoing content, output event notifications can be temporarily suspended using IOControl interface (super interface of NHttpClientConnection).

Please note that the NHttpClientConnection and ContentEncoder objects are not thread-safe and should only be used within the context of this method call. The IOControl object can be shared and used on other thread to resume output event notifications when more content is made available.

Specified by:
outputReady in interface NHttpClientEventHandler
Parameters:
conn - HTTP connection that can accommodate a new portion of the outgoing request content.
encoder - The content encoder to use to write content.
Throws:
IOException
HttpException
See Also:
NHttpClientConnection, ContentEncoder, IOControl

responseReceived

public void responseReceived(NHttpClientConnection conn)
                      throws HttpException,
                             IOException
Description copied from interface: NHttpClientEventHandler
Triggered when an HTTP response is received. The connection passed as a parameter to this method is guaranteed to return a valid HTTP response object.

If the response received encloses a response entity this method will be followed by a series of NHttpClientEventHandler.inputReady(NHttpClientConnection, ContentDecoder) calls to transfer the response content.

Specified by:
responseReceived in interface NHttpClientEventHandler
Parameters:
conn - HTTP connection that contains an HTTP response
Throws:
HttpException
IOException
See Also:
NHttpClientConnection

inputReady

public void inputReady(NHttpClientConnection conn,
                       ContentDecoder decoder)
                throws IOException,
                       HttpException
Description copied from interface: NHttpClientEventHandler
Triggered when the underlying channel is ready for reading a new portion of the response entity through the corresponding content decoder.

If the content consumer is unable to process incoming content, input event notifications can be temporarily suspended using IOControl interface (super interface of NHttpClientConnection).

Please note that the NHttpClientConnection and ContentDecoder objects are not thread-safe and should only be used within the context of this method call. The IOControl object can be shared and used on other thread to resume input event notifications when the handler is capable of processing more content.

Specified by:
inputReady in interface NHttpClientEventHandler
Parameters:
conn - HTTP connection that can produce a new portion of the incoming response content.
decoder - The content decoder to use to read content.
Throws:
IOException
HttpException
See Also:
NHttpClientConnection, ContentDecoder, IOControl

endOfInput

public void endOfInput(NHttpClientConnection conn)
                throws IOException
Description copied from interface: NHttpClientEventHandler
Triggered when the connection is closed by the opposite end point (half-closed).

Specified by:
endOfInput in interface NHttpClientEventHandler
Parameters:
conn - half-closed HTTP connection.
Throws:
IOException

timeout

public void timeout(NHttpClientConnection conn)
             throws IOException
Description copied from interface: NHttpClientEventHandler

protected void log(Exception ex)
This method can be used to log I/O exception thrown while closing Closeable objects (such as HttpConnection}).

Parameters:
ex - I/O exception thrown by Closeable.close()
