  • How to set http method parameters with RestTemplate

    Hi to everyone.

    I use RestTemplate (and apach HttpClient 4) in my project and I enjoy things this template provide.

    Our system has a lot of interfaces and some of services I request require to use the same local ip adrress for each request, so I store it and set property org.apache.http.conn.params.ConnRoutePNames.LOCAL_ ADDRESS every time when I execute my requests. And there's no problem if I do without RestTemplate, but I don't know how to set this parameter to request thought RestTemplate.

    Actually I have some idea about it. I read RestTemplate docs and I found that I have to use RequestCallback to prepare my request before execution (requestCallback object that prepares the request).

    I think about some RequestCallback implementation and it's using like that:
    restTemplate.execute("http://someurl", HttpMethod.GET, new LocalIpRequestCallback(""), null);
    private final class LocalIpRequestCallback implements RequestCallback{
    private final String localIp2use;
            private LocalIpRequestCallback(String localIp2use) {
                this.localIp2use = localIp2use;
            public void doWithRequest(ClientHttpRequest request) throws IOException {
                if(localIp2use != null){
                    if(request instanceof HttpComponentsClientHttpRequest){
                        HttpComponentsClientHttpRequest apacheRequest =  (HttpComponentsClientHttpRequest)request;                
                        apacheRequest.setParameter(ConnRoutePNames.LOCAL_ADDRESS, localIp2use);

    But there's some problems:
    - HttpComponentsClientHttpRequest is not public;
    - HttpComponentsClientHttpRequest even if it was a public it doesn't have any method for setting parameters;

    Does anybody has any advices ?
