Public Methods

public Object clone ()

Since: API Level 1

Creates and returns a copy of this Object. The default implementation returns a so-called "shallow" copy: It creates a new instance of the same class and then copies the field values (including object references) from this instance to the new instance. A "deep" copy, in contrast, would also recursively clone nested objects. A subclass that needs to implement this kind of cloning should call super.clone() to create the new instance and then create deep copies of the nested, mutable objects.

  • a copy of this object.

public boolean expectContinue ()

Since: API Level 1

Tells if this request should use the expect-continue handshake. The expect continue handshake gives the server a chance to decide whether to accept the entity enclosing request before the possibly lengthy entity is sent across the wire.

  • true if the expect continue handshake should be used, false if not.

public HttpEntity getEntity ()

Since: API Level 1

public void setEntity (HttpEntity entity)

Since: API Level 1

Hands the entity to the request.

entity the entity to send.
