Interface HttpConnection

    • Method Detail

      • close

        void close()
            throws IOException
        Closes this connection gracefully. This method will attempt to flush the internal output buffer prior to closing the underlying socket. This method MUST NOT be called from a different thread to force shutdown of the connection. Use shutdown instead.

      • isOpen

        boolean isOpen()
        Checks if this connection is open.
        true if it is open, false if it is closed.
      • isStale

        boolean isStale()
        Checks whether this connection has gone down. Network connections may get closed during some time of inactivity for several reasons. The next time a read is attempted on such a connection it will throw an IOException. This method tries to alleviate this inconvenience by trying to find out if a connection is still usable. Implementations may do that by attempting a read with a very small timeout. Thus this method may block for a small amount of time before returning a result. It is therefore an expensive operation.
        true if attempts to use this connection are likely to succeed, or false if they are likely to fail and this connection should be closed
      • setSocketTimeout

        void setSocketTimeout​(int timeout)
        Sets the socket timeout value.
        timeout - timeout value in milliseconds
      • getSocketTimeout

        int getSocketTimeout()
        Returns the socket timeout value.
        positive value in milliseconds if a timeout is set, 0 if timeout is disabled or -1 if timeout is undefined.
      • shutdown

        void shutdown()
               throws IOException
        Force-closes this connection. This is the only method of a connection which may be called from a different thread to terminate the connection. This method will not attempt to flush the transmitter's internal buffer prior to closing the underlying socket.
      • getMetrics

        HttpConnectionMetrics getMetrics()
        Returns a collection of connection metrics.
