Interface ClientConnectionOperator

All Known Implementing Classes:
DefaultClientConnectionOperator

public interface ClientConnectionOperator

Interface for opening connections. This interface encapsulates the logic to create sockets and to open or update the connection with the new socket. Implementations will most likely make use of socket factories.
The methods in this interface allow the creation of plain and layered sockets. Creating a tunnelled connection through a proxy, however, is not within the scope of the operator.

Since:
4.0

Method Summary
 OperatedClientConnection createConnection()
          Creates a new connection that can be operated.
 void openConnection(OperatedClientConnection conn, HttpHost target, InetAddress local, HttpContext context, HttpParams params)
          Opens a connection to the given target host.
 void updateSecureConnection(OperatedClientConnection conn, HttpHost target, HttpContext context, HttpParams params)
          Updates a connection with a layered secure connection.
 

Method Detail

createConnection

OperatedClientConnection createConnection()
Creates a new connection that can be operated.

Returns:
a new, unopened connection for use with this operator

openConnection

void openConnection(OperatedClientConnection conn,
                    HttpHost target,
                    InetAddress local,
                    HttpContext context,
                    HttpParams params)
                    throws IOException
Opens a connection to the given target host.

Parameters:
conn - the connection to open
target - the target host to connect to
local - the local address to route from, or null for the default
context - the context for the connection
params - the parameters for the connection
Throws:
IOException - in case of a problem

updateSecureConnection

void updateSecureConnection(OperatedClientConnection conn,
                            HttpHost target,
                            HttpContext context,
                            HttpParams params)
                            throws IOException
Updates a connection with a layered secure connection. The typical use of this method is to update a tunnelled plain connection (HTTP) to a secure TLS/SSL connection (HTTPS).

Parameters:
conn - the open connection to update
target - the target host for the updated connection. The connection must already be open or tunnelled to the host and port, but the scheme of the target will be used to create a layered connection.
context - the context for the connection
params - the parameters for the updated connection
Throws:
IOException - in case of a problem
