Java – Disable Keep Alive in Apache HttpClient


For some problem that we couldn't solve, I want to disable keep alive on Apache HttpClient 3.1. However, I couldn't find any resource on the Internet for that. Do you know how to do it?

Best Solution

You can disable HTTP 1.1 support on you method, i.e. httpMethod.setHttp11(false); but you will lost some other features.

You can also try to force the connection header to ask the server to close the connection after its response: httpMethod.setRequestHeader("Connection", "close").
