 HttpComponents Structure
 
-    The HttpComponents project is in the process of developing low-level libraries for several

-    aspects of the HTTP protocol. Users with advanced needs in server- or client-side HTTP
-    communication may find this a useful toolset to build custom HTTP services.
+* HttpComponents Core
 
-* HttpCore
-
-    The {{{httpcomponents-core/index.html}HttpCore}} components implement the most fundamental

-    aspects of the HTTP protocol. They are nonetheless sufficient to develop basic client-side
and 
-    server-side HTTP services with a minimal footprint and no external dependencies.
-
-    HttpCore consists of several modules
-
-** HttpCore base module
-
-    This module contains the HttpCore public API and the default implementation based on
the Java 
-    classic (blocking) I/O model. It requires a Java 1.3 compatible runtime and has no dependency

-    on any external libraries.
-
-** HttpCore NIO extensions
-
-    HttpCore NIO extensions contain optional components that leverage the event driven, non-blocking

-    I/O (NIO) model. HttpCore NIO extensions require a Java 5.0 compatible runtime and the
HttpCore 
-    base module. HttpCore NIO extensions are intended for those usage scenarios where raw
throughput 
-    is less important than the ability to handle thousands of simultaneous HTTP connections
in a 
-    resource efficient manner.
-
-* HttpClient
-
-    {{{httpcomponents-client/index.html}HttpClient}} provides components for client-side

-    authentication, HTTP state management, connection management, and an HTTP/1.1 compliant
-    HTTP agent implementation based on those components. It is intended as successor of and

-    replacement for {{{http://hc.apache.org/httpclient-3.x/index.html}Jakarta 
-    Commons HttpClient 3.x}}
-
-** HttpClient base module
-
-    The {{{httpcomponents-client/httpclient/index.html}HttpClient}} module is a full-featured,

-    HTTP/1.1 compliant agent built on top of {{{httpcomponents-core/index.html}HttpCore}}.
-
-** HttpMime module
+    {{{httpcomponents-core/index.html}HttpCore}} is a set of low level HTTP transport components

+    that can be used to build custom client and server side HTTP services with a minimal
footprint. 
+    HttpCore supports two I/O models: blocking I/O model based on the classic Java I/O and

+    non-blocking, event driven I/O model based on Java NIO. 
+    
+    The blocking I/O model may be more appropriate for data intensive, low latency scenarios,
+    whereas the non-blocking model may be more appropriate for high latency scenarios where
raw data
+    throughput is less important than the ability to handle thousands of simultaneous HTTP

+    connections in a resource efficient manner.
 
-    The {{{httpcomponents-client/httpmime/index.html}HttpMime}} module extends 
-    {{{http://james.apache.org/mime4j/index.html}mime4j}} library with some HTTP specific
-    functionality and integrates it with the HttpComponents framework.
+    * HttpCore Tutorial ( {{{httpcomponents-core/tutorial/html}HTML}} 
+      / {{{httpcomponents-core/tutorial/pdf/httpcore-tutorial.pdf}PDF}} )
+    
+    * HttpCore {{{httpcomponents-core/examples.html}Samples}}
+    
+* HttpComponents Client
 
+    {{{httpcomponents-client/index.html}HttpClient}} is a HTTP/1.1 compliant HTTP agent 
+    implementation based on HttpCore. It also provides reusable components for client-side

+    authentication, HTTP state management, and HTTP connection management. HttpComponents
Client 
+    is intended as successor of and replacement for 
+    {{{http://hc.apache.org/httpclient-3.x/index.html} Jakarta Commons HttpClient 3.x}}
 
-Commons HttpClient
+    * HttpClient {{{httpcomponents-client/examples.html}Samples}}
+    
+* Commons HttpClient (legacy)
 
     The Apache HttpComponents project is charged with developing and maintaining 
     {{{http://hc.apache.org/httpclient-3.x/index.html}Commons HttpClient}}.
