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)
<https://w3c.github.io/resource-timing/#dom-performanceresourcetiming-nexthopprotocol>

• Fetch Response `statusText` property tests the HTTP status message (HTTP/2 doesn't have this)
<https://webkit.org/b/176479>

Notes:

Apache has a guide for including HTTP/2 support:
<https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/howto/http2.html>

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?
