pivotal -- HttpTransmitter (HttpWebResponse) request.GetResponse() should be in using block


Moved to pivotal

The object returns an IDisposable and therefore it would be cleaner to place it in a using block than to have a finally block.


var responseStream = new TempFileStream();

Should this be in a using block?

Good point on the HTTP transmitter. Go ahead and refactor it.

Cannot put a using block around the temp file stream because the transmission part collection keeps it open and it will be used later. I'm trying to minimize stream copies so the TransmissionPart always uses the stream it is given and does not make a copy unless the stream cannot be seeked (e.g. NetworkStream).

Can we discuss when the transmission goes "out of scope" so that dispose can be called? My fear is we have open handles.

I can write tests around this to verify it if needed.
