Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] HttpComponents Client for Android 4.3.3 Released
Date Thu, 20 Mar 2014 13:45:27 GMT
The Apache HttpComponents project is pleased to announce a port
of HttpComponents HttpClient 4.3.3 GA to Google Android.

Apache HttpClient for Android can be deployed on Google Android in
parallel to the outdated version shipped with platform  while 
remaining partially API compatible with Apache HttpClient 4.3.  

Differences with the stock version of Apache HttpClient 

(1) Compiled against HttpClient 4.0 APIs.
(2) Commons Logging replaced with Android Logging.
(3) Base64 implementation from Commons Codec replaced with Android
(4) Android SSLCertificateSocketFactory used by default for SSL/TLS

Compatibility notes 

(1) HttpClient port for Android is compiled against the official Android
SDK and is expected to be fully compatible with any code consuming
HttpClient services through its interface (HttpClient) rather than the
default implementation (DefaultHttpClient).

(2) Code compiled against stock versions of Apache HttpClient 4.3 is not
fully compatible with the HttpClient port for Android. Some of the
implementation classes had to be copied (or shaded) with different names
in order to avoid conflicts with the older versions of the same classes
included in the Android runtime. One can increase compatibility with the
stock version of HttpClient by avoiding 'org.apache.http.**.*HC4'
