Even so, HTTP client is not an HTML interpreter.

The "server push" part of the "great ideas" relies on keeping
a connection open. No problem with HttpClient, use
getResponseBodyAsStream() and read the data as it comes in.

The "client pull" requires the client to poll for updates.
No problem with HttpClient, use getResponseHeader to check
for the presence of a header, then re-issue new requests
as instructed by that header.
