> Hello.  This is my first time posting an issue to this project.  I've done my best to
be helpful.
> Many modern RESTful APIs (e.g. Amazon Web Services) will return a generic status description
(e.g. "Bad Request") and details in the body of the response on an error (e.g. code 400).
 
> However the org.apache.http.client.fluent.Response.returnContent() ignores the body (content)
on a return code of over or equal to 300, causing the debugging information to be lost.  This
leads to generic exception messages.
> A possible solution would be to include the body in the exception string, as demonstrated
in the below ResponseHandler.
>     protected static class FaultTolerantContentResponseHandler
>             extends ContentResponseHandler {
>         @Override
>         public Content handleResponse(final HttpResponse response)
>                 throws HttpResponseException, IOException {
>             final StatusLine statusLine = response.getStatusLine();
>             final HttpEntity entity = response.getEntity();
>             Content content = entity == null ? null : handleEntity(entity);
>             if (statusLine.getStatusCode() >= 300) {
>                 String message = statusLine.getReasonPhrase();
>                 if (content != null) {
>                     message += ", body was " + content.asString();
>                 }
>                 throw new HttpResponseException(statusLine.getStatusCode(),
>                         message);
>             }
>             return content;
>         }
>     }
> Alternatives would be to create a new subclass of HttpResponseException that would have
an additional getErrorContent() method to preserve backwards compatibility.
