Feature: #89018 - Provide implementation for PSR-17 HTTP Message Factories

See forge#89018


Support for PSR-17 HTTP Message Factories has been added.

PSR-17 HTTP Factories are intended to be used by PSR-15 request handlers in order to create PSR-7 compatible message objects.

PSR-17 consists of six factory interfaces:

  • \Psr\Http\Message\RequestFactoryInterface
  • \Psr\Http\Message\ResponseFactoryInterface
  • \Psr\Http\Message\ServerRequestFactoryInterface
  • \Psr\Http\Message\StreamFactoryInterface
  • \Psr\Http\Message\UploadedFileFactoryInterface
  • \Psr\Http\Message\UriFactoryInterface

Request handlers shall use dependency injection to use any of the available PSR-17 HTTP Factory interfaces.


PSR-17 HTTP Factory interfaces are provided by psr/http-factory and should be used as dependencies for PSR-15 request handlers or services that need to create PSR-7 message objects.

It is discouraged to explicitly create PSR-7 instances of classes from the \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Http namespace (they are not public API). Use type declarations against PSR-17 HTTP Message Factory interfaces and dependency injection instead.

Example usage

A middleware that needs to send a JSON response when a certain condition is met, uses the PSR-17 response factory interface (the concrete TYPO3 implementation is injected as constructor dependency) to create a new PSR-7 response object:

use Psr\Http\Message\ResponseFactoryInterface;
use Psr\Http\Message\ResponseInterface;
use Psr\Http\Message\ServerRequestInterface;
use Psr\Http\Server\MiddlewareInterface;
use Psr\Http\Server\RequestHandlerInterface;

class StatusCheckMiddleware implements MiddlewareInterface
    /** @var ResponseFactoryInterface */
    private $responseFactory;

    public function __construct(ResponseFactoryInterface $responseFactory)
        $this->responseFactory = $responseFactory;

    public function process(ServerRequestInterface $request, RequestHandlerInterface $handler): ResponseInterface
        if ($request->getRequestTarget() === '/check') {
            $data = ['status' => 'ok'];
            $response = $this->responseFactory->createResponse()
                ->withHeader('Content-Type', 'application/json; charset=utf-8');
            return $response;
        return $handler->handle($request);
