About Apache HttpAsyncClient

Although the java.net package provides basic functionality for accessing
resources via HTTP, it doesn't provide the full flexibility or
functionality needed by many applications. HttpAsyncClient seeks to fill
this void by providing an efficient, up-to-date, and feature-rich
package with an event-driven programming interface based on a
non-blocking I/O model.
