The Hypertext Transfer Protocol is one of the foundational Internet protocols. Almost 20 years after the initial version, RFC 7540 codified HTTP/2, maintaining the core concepts of HTTP/1.1 and incorporating several important optimizations. Building on advances in Jetty 9 and JDK 8, recent improvements to Apache NiFi introduced server support for HTTP/2 in both framework and extension components.
Apache NiFi 1.16.0 added configurable logging for HTTP requests, which the framework processes during user interface actions or service operations. HTTP request logging supports a number of use cases, including access auditing, communication troubleshooting, and performance monitoring.
Socket Broker is a Java library supporting SOCKS and HTTP proxy servers with authentication. Socket Broker provides TCP network connections through proxy servers with optional support for username and password credentials, without the need for configuring Java system properties.
