public final HttpResponse execute (HttpUriRequest request)

Added in API level 1

Executes a request using the default context.

Parameters
request the request to execute
Returns
  • the response to the request. This is always a final response, never an intermediate response with an 1xx status code. Whether redirects or authentication challenges will be returned or handled automatically depends on the implementation and configuration of this client.

public T execute (HttpUriRequest request, ResponseHandler<? extends T> responseHandler, HttpContext context)

Added in API level 1

Executes a request using the given context and processes the response using the given response handler.

Parameters
request the request to execute
responseHandler the response handler
Returns
  • the response object as generated by the response handler.

public final HttpResponse execute (HttpUriRequest request, HttpContext context)

Added in API level 1

Maps to execute(target, request, context). The target is determined from the URI of the request.

Parameters
request the request to execute
context the request-specific execution context, or null to use a default context
Returns
  • the response to the request. This is always a final response, never an intermediate response with an 1xx status code. Whether redirects or authentication challenges will be returned or handled automatically depends on the implementation and configuration of this client.

public T execute (HttpHost target, HttpRequest request, ResponseHandler<? extends T> responseHandler)

Added in API level 1

Executes a request to the target using the default context and processes the response using the given response handler.

Parameters
target the target host for the request. Implementations may accept null if they can still determine a route, for example to a default target or by inspecting the request.
request the request to execute
responseHandler the response handler
Returns
  • the response object as generated by the response handler.

public final HttpResponse execute (HttpHost target, HttpRequest request)

Added in API level 1

Executes a request to the target using the default context.

Parameters
target the target host for the request. Implementations may accept null if they can still determine a route, for example to a default target or by inspecting the request.
request the request to execute
Returns
  • the response to the request. This is always a final response, never an intermediate response with an 1xx status code. Whether redirects or authentication challenges will be returned or handled automatically depends on the implementation and configuration of this client.

public final HttpResponse execute (HttpHost target, HttpRequest request, HttpContext context)

Added in API level 1

Executes a request to the target using the given context.

Parameters
target the target host for the request. Implementations may accept null if they can still determine a route, for example to a default target or by inspecting the request.
request the request to execute
context the context to use for the execution, or null to use the default context
Returns
  • the response to the request. This is always a final response, never an intermediate response with an 1xx status code. Whether redirects or authentication challenges will be returned or handled automatically depends on the implementation and configuration of this client.

public T execute (HttpHost target, HttpRequest request, ResponseHandler<? extends T> responseHandler, HttpContext context)

Added in API level 1

Executes a request to the target using the given context and processes the response using the given response handler.

Parameters

request the request to execute
responseHandler the response handler
context the context to use for the execution, or null to use the default context
Returns
  • the response object as generated by the response handler.
