      Description

      Customer reports that the current org.alfresco.httpclient.AbstractHttpClient (and other classes) are using HttpClient version 3.

      The API used matches that of httpclient 3. Version 4 of httpclient uses a different package name and the API is significantly different to require a rework of code using it.

      Httpclient 3 package prefix: org.apache.commons.httpclient
      Httpclient 4 package prefix: org.apache.http

      A customer is requesting Apache HttpClient 4.3 be used so it will allow use of alternate authentication methods such as SPNEGO.

      Business case

      The customer has 2 existing authentication mechanisms, Siteminder and SPNEGO. Adding support for SSL would require a third Apache instance, which they are trying to avoid, to limit the number of server instances.
