Hi Friends,

In a class that implements HttpRequestAttributeListener, when HttpRequestAttributeEvent.getValue() called within attributeReplaced() and attributeRemoved()callbacks return only the previous values..

Whats the point in this?

Check the specs. That's the expected behavior.

I think question was why spec defined behavior in this way. Honestly I hate the spec too.

I accept the fact...

But the attributeAdded() returning the previous value, means, how are we going to use it and what are the possible applications..

Shouldn't be. Previous value only make sense with attributeRemoved, or attributeReplaced, right?

By invoking attributeReplaced() what do you expect? I would expect the value of the replaced attribute not the value it is replaced by. Similar goes with remove thingy.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
