      Description

      Jetty 9.3 offers support for HTTP/2. Interest in HTTP/2 or its predecessor SPDY was shown in SOLR-6699 and on the mailing list.

      Among the HTTP/2 benefits over HTTP/1.1 relevant to Solr are:

      • multiplexing requests over a single TCP connection ("streams")
      • canceling a single request without closing the TCP connection
      • removing head-of-line blocking
      • header compression

      Caveats:

      • Jetty 9.3 is at M2, not released.
      • Full Solr support for HTTP/2 would require more work than just upgrading Jetty. The server configuration would need to change and a new HTTP client (Jetty's own client, Square's OkHttp, etc.) would need to be selected and wired up. Perhaps this is worthy of a branch?
