Class Overview

A ResponseHandler that returns the response body as a String for successful (2xx) responses. If the response code was >= 300, the response body is consumed and an HttpResponseException is thrown. If this is used with {@link org.apache.http.client.HttpClient#execute( org.apache.http.client.methods.HttpUriRequest, ResponseHandler), HttpClient may handle redirects (3xx responses) internally.
