Disabling Apache Httpclient

Disabling Httpclient5

The new default filetransfer provider (httclient5) may be changed from httpclient5 to the URLConnection provider (using the underlying JVM's impl of URLConnection) by setting the following system property upon eclipse (or other app) startup:

org.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer.excludeContributors=org.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer.httpclient5

For example, to set this property when starting Eclipse:

eclipse -vmargs -Dorg.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer.excludeContributors=org.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer.httpclient5

This will disable the Apache HttpClient5 provider, and force using the URLConnection provider.
