Interface RequestDirector

All Known Implementing Classes:
DefaultRequestDirector

Deprecated. (4.3) No longer used

@Deprecated
public interface RequestDirector

A client-side request director. The director decides which steps are necessary to execute a request. It establishes connections and optionally processes redirects and authentication challenges. The director may therefore generate and send a sequence of requests in order to execute one initial request.

Since:
4.0

Method Summary
 HttpResponse execute(HttpHost target, HttpRequest request, HttpContext context)
          Deprecated. Executes a request.
 

Method Detail

execute

HttpResponse execute(HttpHost target,
                     HttpRequest request,
                     HttpContext context)
                     throws HttpException,
                            IOException
Deprecated. 
Executes a request.

Note: For the time being, a new director is instantiated for each request. This is the same behavior as for HttpMethodDirector in HttpClient 3.

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 for executing the request
Returns:
the final response to the request. This is never an intermediate response with status code 1xx.
Throws:
HttpException - in case of a problem
IOException - in case of an IO problem or if the connection was aborted
