Name        : httpcomponents-core
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 4.2.2
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : http://hc.apache.org/
Summary     : Set of low level Java HTTP transport components for HTTP services
Description :
HttpCore is a set of low level HTTP transport components that can be
used to build custom client and server side HTTP services with a
minimal footprint. HttpCore supports two I/O models: blocking I/O
model based on the classic Java I/O and non-blocking, event driven I/O
model based on Java NIO.

The blocking I/O model may be more appropriate for data intensive, low
latency scenarios, whereas the non-blocking model may be more
appropriate for high latency scenarios where raw data throughput is
less important than the ability to handle thousands of simultaneous
HTTP connections in a resource efficient manner.

Update Information:

This update fixes a number of bugs and regressions found since 4.2.1, including a major bug in the NIO module causing incorrect handling of outgoing Content-Length delimited messages larger than 2GB.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update httpcomponents-core' at the command line.

available at http://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/.
