HttpComponents Client

This is the most current released version of HttpClient, brought to you by the Apache HttpComponents Project.

See also the current HttpComponents News.

This release is available in both binary and source distributions.

Note: The tar files in this distribution use GNU tar extensions and must be untarred with a GNU compatible version of tar. The version of tar on Solaris and Mac OS X will not work with these files.


The files in this distribution have been digitally signed using PGP. Each signed file has a corresponding filename.asc signature file in the same directory. The signing keys can be found in the distribution directory at <>.

Always download the KEYS file directly from the Apache site, never from a mirror site.

Always test available signatures, to ensure that what you download has not been tampered with. How you do this depends on the tools that you use. Here are a few examples:
