This is highly unlikely. HttpClient has been used by so many people in
production for several years (me included) that this is not very likely
you are the very first one to have run into such a fundamental problem

Do not. That'll create even more problems

Yes. (1) Send 'connection: close' with each request. (2) Implement a
custom connection manager

and every method execute, don't you?

Please take a closer look at the following resources:

These guides are intended for HttpClient 3.0 but similar principles can
