All Implemented Interfaces:
HttpEntity

public class BufferedHttpEntity
extends HttpEntityWrapper

A wrapping entity that buffers it content if necessary. The buffered entity is always repeatable. If the wrapped entity is repeatable itself, calls are passed through. If the wrapped entity is not repeatable, the content is read into a buffer once and provided from there as often as required.

Constructor Detail

BufferedHttpEntity

public BufferedHttpEntity(HttpEntity entity)
                   throws IOException
Throws:
IOException
Method Detail

getContentLength

public long getContentLength()
Description copied from interface: HttpEntity
Tells the length of the content, if known.

Specified by:
getContentLength in interface HttpEntity
Overrides:
getContentLength in class HttpEntityWrapper
Returns:
the number of bytes of the content, or a negative number if unknown. If the content length is known but exceeds Long.MAX_VALUE, a negative number is returned.

getContent

public InputStream getContent()
                       throws IOException
Description copied from interface: HttpEntity
Creates a new InputStream object of the entity. It is a programming error to return the same InputStream object more than once. Entities that are not repeatable will throw an exception if this method is called multiple times.

Specified by:
getContent in interface HttpEntity
Overrides:
getContent in class HttpEntityWrapper
Returns:
a new input stream that returns the entity data.
Throws:
IOException - if the stream could not be created

isChunked

public boolean isChunked()
Tells that this entity does not have to be chunked.

Specified by:
isChunked in interface HttpEntity
Overrides:
isChunked in class HttpEntityWrapper
Returns:
false

isRepeatable

public boolean isRepeatable()
Tells that this entity is repeatable.

Specified by:
isRepeatable in interface HttpEntity
Overrides:
isRepeatable in class HttpEntityWrapper
Returns:
true

writeTo

public void writeTo(OutputStream outstream)
             throws IOException
Description copied from interface: HttpEntity
Writes the entity content to the output stream.

Specified by:
writeTo in interface HttpEntity
Overrides:
writeTo in class HttpEntityWrapper
Parameters:
outstream - the output stream to write entity content to
Throws:
IOException - if an I/O error occurs

isStreaming

public boolean isStreaming()
Description copied from interface: HttpEntity
Tells whether this entity depends on an underlying stream. Streamed entities should return true until the content has been consumed, false afterwards. Self-contained entities should return false. Wrapping entities should delegate this call to the wrapped entity.
The content of a streamed entity is consumed when the stream returned by getContent has been read to EOF, or after consumeContent has been called. If a streamed entity can not detect whether the stream has been read to EOF, it should return true until consumeContent is called.

Specified by:
isStreaming in interface HttpEntity
Overrides:
isStreaming in class HttpEntityWrapper
Returns:
true if the entity content is streamed and not yet consumed, false otherwise
