5 Limitations

Besides its facility and flexible interface, HttpClient package has also some limitations when compared with HTTP 1.0 protocol. They refer only to the advance use of HTTP 1.0 protocol:

  1. Encapsulation and processing of several entities within a single message's Entity-Body, is not supported.

  2. Inclusion of Entity-Body within HTTP requests, is available only for the POST ones (see Section 2.3).
