Bug #14688

Net::HTTPResponse#value raises "Net::HTTPServerException" in 4xx response

Added by unasuke (Yusuke Nakamura) 5 days ago. Updated 1 day ago.

Target version:


Call value method to an instance of Net::HTTPResponse it raises Net::HTTPServerException in case of HTTP response status code is 4xx.

But HTTP response status code 4xx means "Client error response" not "Server response" so I think that's wrong naming.

Therefore, I think it's maybe specifications bug, but it cause breaking changes in many ruby programs to change exception name.

I propose to create Net::HTTPClientException as alias of the Net::HTTPServerException for compatibility.

I like this. If nobody has an objection, I want to deprecate_constant the old one, and would like the same fix for Net::ProtoServerError as well.

The described transition path makes sense (to me).
