Apache Http Client Https

Posted on  by admin
  • I have enabled https in tomcat and have a self-signed certificate for server auth. I have created an http client using Apache httpClient. I have set a trust manager loading the server certificate. The http client can connect with server no problem. To see what is going on I enabled debugging: System.setProperty('javax.net.debug', 'ssl').
  • HttpClient instances can be created either using HttpClientBuilder or factory methods of the HttpClients utility class. This code snippet shows how to create HttpClient instance with default configuration. The instance will be configured to use a pool of connections with maximum two concurrent connections for the same route (host).

The Apache HttpComponents project is responsible for creating and maintaining a toolset of low level Java components focused on HTTP and associated protocols.

This project functions under the Apache Software Foundation (http://www.apache.org), and is part of a larger community of developers and users.

HttpComponents Overview

The Hyper-Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is perhaps the most significant protocol used on the Internet today. Web services, network-enabled appliances and the growth of network computing continue to expand the role of the HTTP protocol beyond user-driven web browsers, while increasing the number of applications that require HTTP support.

Designed for extension while providing robust support for the base HTTP protocol, the HttpComponents may be of interest to anyone building HTTP-aware client and server applications such as web browsers, web spiders, HTTP proxies, web service transport libraries, or systems that leverage or extend the HTTP protocol for distributed communication.

HttpComponents Core

I have enabled http 2.0 with SSL in a spring boot 2.1.2 REST application with embedded tomcat using configuration 'server.http2.enabled=true' and other SSL configurations in application.properties file. It is working fine. When a http2 client post https request, my server is processing and responding properly (java 9 http client is being used).

HttpCore is a set of low level HTTP transport components that can be used to build custom client and server side HTTP services with a minimal footprint. HttpCore supports two I/O models: blocking I/O model based on the classic Java I/O and non-blocking, event driven I/O model based on Java NIO.

HttpClient is a HTTP/1.1 compliant HTTP agent implementation based on HttpCore. It also provides reusable components for client-side authentication, HTTP state management, and HTTP connection management. HttpComponents Client is a successor of and replacement for Commons HttpClient 3.x. Users of Commons HttpClient are strongly encouraged to upgrade.

Commons HttpClient 3.x codeline is at the end of life. All users of Commons HttpClient 3.x are strongly encouraged to upgrade to HttpClient 4.1.
