Net-http-persistent 2.4.1 Released

net-http-persistent version 2.4.1 has been released!

Manages persistent connections using Net::HTTP plus a speed fix for Ruby
1.8.
It’s thread-safe too!

Using persistent HTTP connections can dramatically increase the speed of
HTTP.
Creating a new HTTP connection for every request involves an extra TCP
round-trip and causes TCP congestion avoidance negotiation to start
over.

Net::HTTP supports persistent connections with some API methods but does
not
handle reconnection gracefully. Net::HTTP::Persistent supports
reconnection
and retry according to RFC 2616.

=== 2.4.1 / 2012-02-03

  • Bug fixes
  • When FakeWeb or WebMock are loaded SSL sessions will not be reused to
    prevent breakage of testing frameworks. Issue #13 by Matt Brictson,
    pull
    request #14 by Zachary S.
  • SSL connections are reset when the SSL parameters change.
    Mechanize issue #194 by dsisnero
  • Last-use times are now cleaned up in #shutdown.

Just thought I’d say thanks for this awesome library.

Could net-http-persistent be used with Faraday so that consecutive API
calls
(e.g. for paginating through a long list, where only 200 entries are
returned
per API call) could be more efficient? Would this be a useful use case
for
net-http-persistent?

Thanks,

This is just a guess, but I think out of the box the answer is no. But
looking at:

https://github.com/technoweenie/faraday/blob/master/lib/faraday/adapter/net_http.rb#L78

it looks like it is probably very easy to add the support.

It would be better to keep this part:

https://github.com/technoweenie/faraday/blob/master/lib/faraday/adapter/net_http.rb#L42-76

and rewrite the bit above that to set up Net::HTTP::Persistent instead.
