You do not need to use HttpClient in particular.  I would just suggest 
you look at it to make sure you've covered all of your bases.

Yes, you definitely need to release the connection.  HttpMethodBase only 
releases connections when there is no response body to be read (e.g. the 
response content length is 0).  I would suggest something like the 

         try {
             method.execute(state, connection);
             // process method response here if appropriate
         } finally {
             // either we're done or an error occured, either way we want
             // to relase the connection

This way you can be sure that all connections are released.  There are a 
number of ways that a connection can be released implicitly, but it is 
best to be sure by doing it explicitly.  There is no harm is calling 
method.releaseConnection() even after the connection has already been
