Subject RE: Example of using HttpClient to measure performance

You might have to hack on the HttpClient source in order to insert additional measurement
points in the HttpMethodBase class, should you want to have a finer degree of control over
your measurement. 

We may consider adding event callbacks to HttpClient in the future. For the time being, however,
you are pretty much on your own

I didn't see a reply so here's my thoughts.
The simplest approach would be to do something like:
long start = System.currentTimeMillis()
..retreive stuff
long end = System.currentTimeMillis()
time is end - start
However, if you're trying to judge scalability you probably should be looking at something
like JMeter (another Apache project) or Grinder (another open-source testing package).

	I would like to use HttpClient to measure performance of websites.  I'm
	currently using java's HttpUrlConnection class.  I've seen the examples for
	retrieving a web page with HttpClient but I'm curious if anyone has an
	example of how to use it to measure performance.  So far the performance
	times I would like to capture are the time it takes to connect to the
	server, the time it takes to process the request and the time it takes to
	download the resulting page.  If anyone knows of an example please let me
