boolean keepAlive(HttpRequest request, HttpResponse response, HttpContext context)
false, the caller MUST close the connection to correctly comply with the HTTP protocol. If it returns
true, the caller SHOULD attempt to keep the connection open for reuse with another request.
One can use the HTTP context to retrieve additional objects that may be relevant for the keep-alive strategy: the actual HTTP connection, the original HTTP request, target host if known, number of times the connection has been reused already and so on.
If the connection is already closed,
false is returned.
The stale connection check MUST NOT be triggered by a
connection reuse strategy.
request- The last request transmitted over that connection.
response- The last response transmitted over that connection.
context- the context in which the connection is being used.
trueif the connection is allowed to be reused, or
falseif it MUST NOT be reused
