  HttpClient4 usage upgrade from HttpClient3
  Add Date : 2018-11-21      
  HttpClient package is an implementation of the HTTP protocol client programming toolkit, to skilled master it, you must be familiar with the HTTP protocol. One of the most simple call as follows:

import java.io.IOException;

import org.apache.http.HttpResponse;

import org.apache.http.client.ClientProtocolException;

import org.apache.http.client.HttpClient;

import org.apache.http.client.methods.HttpGet;

import org.apache.http.client.methods.HttpUriRequest;

import org.apache.http.impl.client.DefaultHttpClient;

public class Test {

    public static void main (String [] args) {

      // Core application class

      HttpClient httpClient = new DefaultHttpClient ();

        // HTTP request

        HttpUriRequest request =

                new HttpGet ( "http: //localhost/index.html");

        // Print request information

        System.out.println (request.getRequestLine ());

        try {

            // Send the request, returns a response

            HttpResponse response = httpClient.execute (request);

            // Print the response information

            System.out.println (response.getStatusLine ());

        } Catch (ClientProtocolException e) {

            // Protocol error

            e.printStackTrace ();

        } Catch (IOException e) {

            // network anomaly

            e.printStackTrace ();




If the HTTP server is normal and there is a corresponding service, regular meeting on the results printed out two lines:

    GET http: //localhost/index.html HTTP / 1.1

    HTTP / 1.1 200 OK

Call the core object httpClient very intuitive, which execute the method passed a request object, and returns a response object. When using httpClient HTTP request, the system may throw two kinds of exceptions, are ClientProtocolException and IOException. The first occurrence of an abnormality is usually protocol errors, such as when the object is constructed HttpGet incoming protocol does not (for example, do not care to "http" written "htp"), or returned by the server does not comply with the HTTP protocol requirements; the second exception is usually due to network anomaly causes, such as the HTTP server does not start and so on.

From a practical point of view, HTTP protocol consists of two parts: HTTP request and HTTP response. So HttpClient package is how HTTP client application it? Implementation process need to pay attention to what the problem?

HTTP request

HTTP 1.1 request by the following composition: GET, HEAD, POST, PUT, DELETE, TRACE and OPTIONS, packages with HttpGet, HttpHead, HttpPost, HttpPut, HttpDelete, HttpTrace, and HttpOptions request to create several classes respectively. All of these classes are to achieve a HttpUriRequest interfaces, it can be used as an execution parameter execute.

All requests are the most commonly used two request GET and POST, GET requests and created the same way, you can create a POST request with the following methods:

HttpUriRequest request = new HttpPost (

        "Http: //localhost/index.html");

HTTP request format to tell us that there are two locations or two ways to provide parameters for request: request-line mode and request-body approach.


request-line manner is provided in the request line arguments directly through the URI.


We can provide arguments when creating an object request URI, such as:

HttpUriRequest request = new HttpGet (

        "Http: //localhost/index.html param1 = value1 & param2 = value2?");


In addition, HttpClient package provides us URIUtils tools that can generate URI arguments through it, such as:

URI uri = URIUtils.createURI ( "http", "localhost", -1, "/index.html",

    "Param1 = value1 & param2 = value2", null);

HttpUriRequest request = new HttpGet (uri);

System.out.println (request.getURI ());

Print the results of the example is as follows:

    http: //localhost/index.html param1 = value1 & param2 = value2?


Note that, if the parameter contains Chinese, need to be URLEncoding process parameters, such as:

String param = "param1 =" + URLEncoder.encode ( "China", "UTF-8") + "& param2 = value2";

URI uri = URIUtils.createURI ( "http", "localhost", 8080,

"/sshsky/index.html", Param, null);

System.out.println (uri);

Print the results of the example is as follows:

    http: //localhost/index.html param1 =% E4% B8% AD% E5% 9B% BD & param2 = value2?


For URLEncoding processing parameters, HttpClient package prepared for other tools for us: URLEncodedUtils. Through it, we can intuitively (but more complex) generated URI, such as:

List params = new ArrayList ();

params.add (new BasicNameValuePair ( "param1", "China"));

params.add (new BasicNameValuePair ( "param2", "value2"));

String param = URLEncodedUtils.format (params, "UTF-8");

URI uri = URIUtils.createURI ( "http", "localhost", 8080,

"/sshsky/index.html", Param, null);

System.out.println (uri);

Print the results of the example is as follows:

    http: //localhost/index.html param1 =% E4% B8% AD% E5% 9B% BD & param2 = value2?


And request-line in different ways, request-body approach is provided in the request-body parameter in this way can only be used for POST requests. There are two classes to complete the work by HttpClient package, they are UrlEncodedFormEntity MultipartEntity class and class. These two classes are to achieve a HttpEntity interface.


The most used UrlEncodedFormEntity class. It can simulate the traditional HTML form POST request parameter transmission through the object created from that class. As in the following form:

< Form action = "http: //localhost/index.html" method = "POST">

    < Input type = "text" name = "param1" value = "China" />

    < Input type = "text" name = "param2" value = "value2" />

    < Inupt type = "submit" value = "submit" />

< / Form>

We can use the following code:

List formParams = new ArrayList ();

formParams.add (new BasicNameValuePair ( "param1", "China"));

formParams.add (new BasicNameValuePair ( "param2", "value2"));

HttpEntity entity = new UrlEncodedFormEntity (formParams, "UTF-8");

HttpPost request = new HttpPost ( "http: //localhost/index.html");

request.setEntity (entity);

Of course, if you want to view HTTP data format can be obtained by various methods HttpEntity object. Such as:

List formParams = new ArrayList ();

formParams.add (new BasicNameValuePair ( "param1", "China"));

formParams.add (new BasicNameValuePair ( "param2", "value2"));

UrlEncodedFormEntity entity = new UrlEncodedFormEntity (formParams, "UTF-8");

System.out.println (entity.getContentType ());

System.out.println (entity.getContentLength ());

System.out.println (EntityUtils.getContentCharSet (entity));

System.out.println (EntityUtils.toString (entity));

Print the results of the example is as follows:

    Content-Type: application / x-www-form-urlencoded; charset = UTF-8



    param1 =% E4% B8% AD% E5% 9B% BD & param2 = value2


In addition to traditional application / x-www-form-urlencoded form, we are another frequently used to upload files using a form, the form of this type of multipart / form-data. In HttpClient program expansion pack (HttpMime) specifically has a corresponding class that MultipartEntity class. Such HttpEntity also implements the interface. As in the following form:

< Form action = "http: //localhost/index.html" method = "POST"

        enctype = "multipart / form-data">

    < Input type = "text" name = "param1" value = "China" />

    < Input type = "text" name = "param2" value = "value2" />

    < Input type = "file" name = "param3" />

    < Inupt type = "submit" value = "submit" />

< / Form>

We can use the following code:

MultipartEntity entity = new MultipartEntity ();

entity.addPart ( "param1", new StringBody ( "China", Charset.forName ( "UTF-8")));

entity.addPart ( "param2", new StringBody ( "value2", Charset.forName ( "UTF-8")));

entity.addPart ( "param3", new FileBody (new File ( "C: \\ 1.txt")));

HttpPost request = new HttpPost ( "http: //localhost/index.html");

request.setEntity (entity);

HTTP response

HttpClient package for the processing of HTTP responses than HTTP request is much simpler, the process also uses HttpEntity interface. We can remove the data stream (InputStream) from HttpEntity object, the data stream response data is returned by the server. Note that, HttpClient package does not responsible for parsing the data stream content. Such as:

HttpUriRequest request = ...;

HttpResponse response = httpClient.execute (request);

// Remove the object from the response in HttpEntity

HttpEntity entity = response.getEntity ();

// Check the indicators entity

System.out.println (entity.getContentType ());

System.out.println (entity.getContentLength ());

System.out.println (EntityUtils.getContentCharSet (entity));

// Remove the server returns the data stream

InputStream stream = entity.getContent ();

// In any way manipulate the data stream stream

// Called slightly


This article describes the HttpClient 4.0.1, the package (including the dependent package) consists of the following JAR packages:







JAR can download the complete package here.

Apache now has released: HttpCore 4.0-beta3, HttpClient 4.0-beta1.

You can go here to download the source code: http: //hc.apache.org/downloads.cgi

In addition, we also need apache-mime4j-0.5.jar package.

Here to write a simple POST method, Chinese little information in English is not very good.

HttpClient4.0 learning examples - Get page

HttpClient 4.0 out soon, so the tutorial examples related to the above small network, search httpclient was mostly based on the original Commons HttpClient 3.1 (legacy) packages, the download page official website: http: //hc.apache.org/downloads. cgi, if you read the instructions to understand httpclient4.0 official website from the original package branched out a separate package, after the original package httpclient not be upgraded, so after we are using httpclient new branch, as with the previous 4.0 3.1 package structure and interface have a larger change, so found online examples are not suitable for most 4.0, of course, we can go through those instances wondering 4.0 usage, I am also a novice, after recording to facilitate the learning process under retrieval

The examples we crawl the page to get the code, content and other information

By default, the server will be based on the client's request header information back to the server to support encoding like google.cn his own support utf-8, gb2312 encoding, etc., so if you do not specify any header information in the header, then he the default will return gb2312 encoding, and if we visit google.cn directly in the browser by httplook, or firefox firebug plug-in to view the return header information, then he returned to find that UTF-8 encoding

Here we look at examples to explain it, so I also put comments inside the code interpretation, put the complete code, easy for beginners to understand

This example will

httpclient related packages use
