InterceptingClientHttpRequest replaces headers set in request factory instead of merging them [SPR-15166] #19732

Nestor Tarin Burriel opened SPR-15166 and commented

When a custom requestFactory adds a header to the request and the RequestEntity contains the same header (e.g. cookies), the one in the RequestEntity will take precedence.

Checking the code in InterceptingClientHttpRequest class:

ClientHttpRequest delegate = requestFactory.createRequest(request.getURI(), request.getMethod());

Is this the desired behaviour? Would it be ok if the header values are added? What if the custom request factory wants to add a cookie and the request header adds a different cookie? (the last one will be in the header and the first one discarded)

Kind regards,


Affects: 4.2.6

Backported to 4.3.7 now, in a slightly different form (without the new method on MultiValueMap).
