Description Joseph Pecoraro 2017-09-06 17:00:14 PDT
It would be useful to have an HTTP/2 server for LayoutTests to test various web features.

1. Test differences between HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/2
2. Test Web APIs that expose networking details

For example:

• Resource Timing Entries include the `nextHopProtocol` to describe the networking protocol used (`http1/1`, `h2`, etc)

• Fetch Response `statusText` property tests the HTTP status message (HTTP/2 doesn't have this)


Apache has a guide for including HTTP/2 support:

Interestingly you can limit support to a VirtualHost, so maybe we could keep one apache instance and just enable a virtual host in a different http2 subdirectory.

We really need this environment. Same thing with WebSocket server, using python to implement H2 server?
