Subject Aborting background request: apache-hc 4.5.2
Date Fri, 25 Mar 2016 18:42:14 GMT
Are there any significant downsides to using HttpRequest.abort() to signal that a request should
give up as soon as possible?  Knowing that this is a blocking I/O not the apache async client.
 Or, is simply better to let it go on naturally and discard the request’s response whenever
it completes?

The basic pattern is
HttpRequestBase request = ...
Future f = executor.submit(r)
try {
    f.get(ms, TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS);
catch(TimeoutException e) {
    request.abort();  // <<< ?good or bad?
    throw e;
