I am using the Java RestClient to do a search against an Elasticsearch cluster, requesting a gzipped response by setting the 'Accept-Encoding' header to 'gzip'. Using Wireshark I can see that the Elastic cluster returns gzipped content.
My question is - how can I access the still gzipped content from my Java code?
byte bytes = EntityUtils.toByteArray(response.getEntity());
byte bytes = response.getEntity().getContent().readAllBytes();
bytes contains the decompressed response.
Why would you need the compressed content? I'm curious.
I believe that the client knows how to deal with uncompressed or compressed content...
And do whatever is needed to give back the requested POJO.
Thank you for replying
I need the compressed response because I would like to forward it - still compressed - to another service that will then decompress and deserialize.
I have no idea if this is possible and if the underlying lib can do that.
But, if it's doable, I guess you would need to use the LowLevel Client instead.
