Public Constructors

public AbstractHttpClientConnection ()

Added in API level 1

Public Methods

public void flush ()

Added in API level 1

Writes out all pending buffered data over the open connection.

Throws
IOException

public HttpConnectionMetrics getMetrics ()

Added in API level 1

Returns a collection of connection metrcis

Returns
  • HttpConnectionMetrics

public boolean isResponseAvailable (int timeout)

Added in API level 1

Checks if response data is available from the connection. May wait for the specified time until some data becomes available. Note that some implementations may completely ignore the timeout parameter.

Parameters
timeout the maximum time in milliseconds to wait for data
Returns
  • true if data is available; false if there was no data available even after waiting for timeout milliseconds.
Throws
IOException

public boolean isStale ()

Added in API level 1

Checks whether this connection has gone down. Network connections may get closed during some time of inactivity for several reasons. The next time a read is attempted on such a connection it will throw an IOException. This method tries to alleviate this inconvenience by trying to find out if a connection is still usable. Implementations may do that by attempting a read with a very small timeout. Thus this method may block for a small amount of time before returning a result. It is therefore an expensive operation.

Returns
  • true if attempts to use this connection are likely to succeed, or false if they are likely to fail and this connection should be closed

public void receiveResponseEntity (HttpResponse response)

Added in API level 1

Receives the next response entity available from this connection and attaches it to an existing HttpResponse object.

Parameters
response the response to attach the entity to

public HttpResponse receiveResponseHeader ()

Added in API level 1

Receives the request line and headers of the next response available from this connection. The caller should examine the HttpResponse object to find out if it should try to receive a response entity as well.

Returns
  • a new HttpResponse object with status line and headers initialized.

public void sendRequestEntity (HttpEntityEnclosingRequest request)

Added in API level 1

Sends the request entity over the connection.

Parameters
request the request whose entity to send.

public void sendRequestHeader (HttpRequest request)

Added in API level 1

Sends the request line and all headers over the connection.

Parameters
request the request whose headers to send.
