Fields

protected boolean chunked

Added in API level 1

The 'chunked' flag. Returned by isChunked, unless that method is overridden.

protected Header contentEncoding

Added in API level 1

The Content-Encoding header. Returned by getContentEncoding, unless that method is overridden.

protected Header contentType

Added in API level 1

The Content-Type header. Returned by getContentType, unless that method is overridden.

Protected Constructors

protected AbstractHttpEntity ()

Added in API level 1

Protected default constructor. The attributes of the created object remain null and false, respectively.

Public Methods

public void consumeContent ()

Added in API level 1

Does not consume anything. The default implementation does nothing if isStreaming returns false, and throws an exception if it returns true. This removes the burden of implementing an empty method for non-streaming entities.

Throws
IOException in case of an I/O problem
UnsupportedOperationException if a streaming subclass does not override this method

public Header getContentEncoding ()

Added in API level 1

Obtains the Content-Encoding header. The default implementation returns the value of the contentEncoding attribute.

Returns
  • the Content-Encoding header, or null

public Header getContentType ()

Added in API level 1

Obtains the Content-Type header. The default implementation returns the value of the contentType attribute.

Returns
  • the Content-Type header, or null

public boolean isChunked ()

Added in API level 1

Obtains the 'chunked' flag. The default implementation returns the value of the chunked attribute.

Returns
  • the 'chunked' flag

public void setChunked (boolean b)

Added in API level 1

Specifies the 'chunked' flag. The default implementation sets the value of the chunked attribute.

Parameters
b the new 'chunked' flag

public void setContentEncoding (String ceString)

Added in API level 1

Specifies the Content-Encoding header, as a string. The default implementation calls setContentEncoding(Header).

Parameters
ceString the new Content-Encoding header, or null to unset

public void setContentEncoding (Header contentEncoding)

Added in API level 1

public void setContentType (String ctString)

Added in API level 1
