Status report for the Apache HttpComponents project - May 2016


  • The Apache HttpComponents project is responsible for creating and maintaining a toolset of low-level Java components focused on HTTP and
    associated protocols


  • There are no issues requiring board attention at this time


  • A vote was passed to move over to Git from SVN. This will thus be performed in the near future
  • We are currently working on adding support for HTTP/2 protocol to HttpCore and HttpClient.
  • We understand that our web site could be improved to migrate away from XML/APT and Maven generation to something like Markdown and jekyll. This would be something we plan to look into in the months ahead.

Health report:

  • Overall the project remains active. Although established in late 2007 the project remains stable and active as seen by JIRA and Emails.
  • The number of emails could be seen as low, but it is stable like the state of the project, and we still have interested people joining into the dev list hoping to contribute, and saying so on the list.
