A simple yet powerful HTTP client for JRuby

this Topic will be presented by Lukas Rieder

at November Meetup, hosted by Tobias Pfeiffer

Http clients... how hard can it be? Not very hard when you are running JRuby. But unfortunately I have not found a single good wrapper around one of those rock solid Java libraries. That is why I went out and wrote a simple, minimal yet powerful wrapper around Apache HTTPClient. It leverages everything that is good in Ruby, but leaves all the dirty work for the underlying library. After I put it in use for my project, I thought that other people might enjoy this too.

This talk will be about Ruby timeout issues, wrapping a Java library and an overview on the http client itself.
