REFCODES.ORG codes represent a group of artifacts consolidating parts of my work in the past years. Several topics are covered which I consider useful for you, programmers, developers and software engineers."
What is this repository for?
This artifact provides networking related definitions and types, functionality and artifacts to be used by

How do I get started?
Use the types and definitions of this artifact when you are tired of defining your own networking based basics, your own HTTP-status-code enumerations (
HttpStatusCode) or exceptions representing erroneous HTTP state, or if you are tired of cookie handling, header field processing ... and so on:
This artifact provides various types such as
HttpMethod, which enable you to use such HTTP based structures in a native Java way while having a tool at hand to bridge back into the HTTP protocol world. HTTP related error codes are provided as exception types such as
NotFoundException (404) or
Please note that the
HttpBodyMap is most useful when you have to handle dynamic data structures. The
HttpBodyMap type is a "dynamic" type in terms of it's structure being represented by paths'. When a data structure is parsed e.g. from JSON or XML, then the data structure's internal structure and values are reflected by according paths's and values in the
HttpBodyMap is a kind of flat (no nested maps) representation of the according (nested) data structures. Implementations of the
HttpServerRequest as well as
HttpServerResponse types support the
As another example, the
BasicAuthCredentials make it ease to parse or create
Basic-Auth header fields.
Other interesting types and classes to mention are the
Port enumeration, defining quite a few default ports or the
MediaTypefactory interface, which's implementations make marshaling and unmarshaling of your types from and to JSON, XML (and so on) an easy task.
Predefined MIME-Types are bundled in the
MediaType enumeration, as of the information provided by the
IANA, effective in October 2016.
