Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] HttpComponents HttpAsyncClient 4.0-alpha1 Released
Date Tue, 18 Jan 2011 12:35:51 GMT
This is the first public release of Apache HttpAsyncClient.
HttpAsyncClient is a library for asynchronous client-side HTTP
communication built on top of HttpCore NIO and HttpClient components.

HttpAsyncClient is NOT meant to replace or supersede Apache HttpClient.
It is a complementary library to Apache HttpClient intended for special
cases where ability to handle a great number of concurrent connections
is more important than performance in terms of a raw data throughput or
for those users who prefer event-driven APIs.

The HttpAsyncClient 4.0 API is still considered experimental and is
expected to change in the course of the ALPHA development phase. This
release is primarily intended for early adopters who may be interested
in contributing to the project and in helping shape the new API.

Please note that currently HttpAsyncClient DOES NOT support:

* HTTP state management (cookies)
* HTTP authentication
* Stateful HTTP connections

Missing functionality will be added in the next ALPHA release.

About Apache HttpAsyncClient

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. HttpAsyncClient seeks to fill
this void by providing an efficient, up-to-date, and feature-rich
package with an event-driven programming interface based on a
non-blocking I/O model.

HttpAsyncClient is NOT meant to replace or supersede Apache HttpClient.
It is a complementary library to Apache HttpClient intended for special
cases where ability to handle a great number of concurrent connections
is more important than performance in terms of a raw data throughput.
