Async (NIO) request processing support in ClientHttpEngine

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      It would be great if RestEasy provides another method in ClientHttpEngine interface with async support (similar to what Jersey does with Connector https://jersey.java.net/apidocs/latest/jersey/index.html) by returning a Future.

      This would be very useful when integrating with an httpclient that has an async api, e.g., AsyncHttpclient (https://github.com/AsyncHttpClient/async-http-client). AsyncHttpClient has an api to run asynchronously:

      Future<Response> response = httpclient.prepareRequest(httprequest).execute();

      However, ClientHttpEngine#invoke method returns as Response object which requires to block by calling the future.get() method.
