Subject Re: How to use two distinct HttpClients on the same web site
Date Thu, 26 Aug 2004 08:49:46 GMT


If all you need is to maintain a distinct conversational state per
logical web application hosted on the same physical platform, you should
have just only one HttpClient instance and then keep different HttpState
instances per web application. It does take a bit of HttpState juggling,
but the benefit of such setup will be a better overall performance, as
HttpClient would be able to reuse physical connections to the host.

HttpClient httpclient = new HttpClient();

HttpState httpstate1 = new HttpState();
GetMethod httpget1 = new GetMethod("http://www.whatever.com/app1");
try {
	httpclient.executeMethod(null, httpget1, httpstate1);
} finally {

HttpState httpstate2 = new HttpState();
GetMethod httpget2 = new GetMethod("http://www.whatever.com/app2");
try {
	httpclient.executeMethod(null, httpget2, httpstate2);
} finally {
Hope this helps
