I am using Play embedded server to proxy requests and responses to some other remote HTTP APIs.
While I can perfectly stream responses using the
RoutingDsl.routingAsync() method, I have not figured out a way to stream requests body to the remote API. Every time the request body gets loaded entirely in memory as a
I found that what I am looking for is body parsers: https://www.playframework.com/documentation/2.8.x/JavaBodyParsers
That is great, but I cannot find a way to configure my body parser using the embedded Play server.
I already tried to override the
BuiltInComponents used by the
RoutingDsl, but I ran into a dead end:
- I can override the
BuiltInComponents.defaultBodyParser()method to customize the
- But the
PlayBodyParsersdoes not let me override anything that looks like a body parser provider (I was confident in overriding the
PlayBodyParsers.config()method, but that is just a Scala case class to customize some buffers )
Do you have some ideas on how I can customize the body parser for the Play embedded server?
Note that I am using Play 2.8 for Java.
Thank you a lot for your help.
