Description Michael Chirlin 2016-05-22 23:45:15 UTC
During Proxy recording I have requests that I want to handle with a SampleCreator other than the DeafultSampleCreator, but the SamplerCreatorFactory only lets the Content-Type header determine which creator is used.

I propose to allow other header type fields to select the SamplerCreator. Currently in my local installation I am selecting the SamplerCreator first using the content-type  header and then falling back to the accept header:

SamplerCreator creator = samplerCreatorMap.get(request.getContentType());

if (creator == null) {
  creator = samplerCreatorMap.get(request.getAccept());

But it would probably be better to add an additional method to the SamplerCreator for getManagedAcceptTypes and have two maps samplerCreatorContentTypeMap and samplerCreatorAcceptMap.

What is the best way for me to make suggestions like this? How easy is it to attach the proposed code?
