> About Apache HttpClient
>
> Although the java.net package provides basic functionality for  
> accessing
> resources via HTTP, it doesn't provide the full flexibility or
> functionality needed by many applications. HttpClient seeks to fill  
> this
> void by providing an efficient, up-to-date, and feature-rich package
> implementing the client side of the most recent HTTP standards and
> recommendations.
>
> Designed for extension while providing robust support for the base  
> HTTP
> protocol, HttpClient may be of interest to anyone building HTTP-aware
> client applications such as web browsers, web service clients, or
> systems that leverage or extend the HTTP protocol for distributed
> communication.
