The term zero-copy applies only to socket to file or file to socket data

If you want to write out any arbitrary request content you should
implement a custom HttpAsyncContentProducer if none of the standard ones
suit your needs. With content-length delineated connections one can
effectively stream data directly to the underlying TCP channel.  

Hope this helps
