@Deprecated public interface NHttpRequestHandlerDeprecated.(4.2) use
HttpAsyncRequestHandlerNHttpRequestHandler represents a routine for asynchronous processing of a specific group of non-blocking HTTP requests. Protocol handlers are designed to take care of protocol specific aspects, whereas individual request handlers are expected to take care of application specific HTTP processing. The main purpose of a request handler is to generate a response object with a content entity to be sent back to the client in response to the given request
All Methods Instance Methods Abstract Methods Deprecated Methods Modifier and Type Method Description
entityRequest(HttpEntityEnclosingRequest request, HttpContext context)Deprecated.Triggered when a request is received with an entity.
handle(HttpRequest request, HttpResponse response, NHttpResponseTrigger trigger, HttpContext context)Deprecated.Initiates processing of the request.
ConsumingNHttpEntity entityRequest(HttpEntityEnclosingRequest request, HttpContext context) throws HttpException, IOExceptionDeprecated.Triggered when a request is received with an entity. This method should return a
ConsumingNHttpEntitythat will be used to consume the entity.
nullis a valid response value, and will indicate that the entity should be silently ignored.
After the entity is fully consumed,
handle(HttpRequest, HttpResponse, NHttpResponseTrigger, HttpContext)is called to notify a full request & entity are ready to be processed.
void handle(HttpRequest request, HttpResponse response, NHttpResponseTrigger trigger, HttpContext context) throws HttpException, IOExceptionDeprecated.Initiates processing of the request. This method does not have to submit a response immediately. It can defer transmission of the HTTP response back to the client without blocking the I/O thread by delegating the process of handling the HTTP request to a worker thread. The worker thread in its turn can use the instance of
NHttpResponseTriggerpassed as a parameter to submit a response as at a later point of time once content of the response becomes available.
