Hi Micky

The async version of Apache HttpClient based on NIO is still in a very
early (pre-ALPHA) stage of development. Lots essential bits are still
missing including a callback mechanism for completed HTTP exchanges.  

Please note there is nothing that prevents you from adding asynchronous
callbacks to the stock version of Apache HttpClient 4.x with a fairly
modest amount of custom code.

If you are absolutely sure you want a NIO based HTTP client, there is at
least a few available. I can recommend Jetty HTTP client.

Hope this helps
