PATCH support on the client


Pavel Bucek
 

Dear experts,

we'd like to make the HTTP PATCH support on the client optional, throwing UnsupportedOperationException on client runtimes, which don't support that method.

I know that we already had a discussion about this, but we concluded that requiring something without having support from the target JDK might be too cumbersome for some environments.

This wouldn't change anything on the server side, it's purely about the client (reflecting the issues related to HttpUrlConnection and derived implementations).

Any comments/suggestions welcomed.

Thanks,
Pavel
