What is Http/2 Client in Java 9?

Http/2 Client API introduced in Java 9. It has more performance improvements over Http/1.1 and also supports server-side push events. This makes the website efficient and faster to browse. Http/2 Client is an incubator module named jdk.incubator.httpclient, which means that all features are still not finalized, and new changes may come in future versions of java. It exports jdk.incubator.http package that contains all public APIs.

To use Http/2 Client, we need to use the incubator module, we simply pass the httpclient module into JShell using the "–add-modules" command as below

C:\>jshell -v --add-modules jdk.incubator.httpclient
| Welcome to JShell -- Version 9.0.4
| For an introduction type: /help intro


jshell> import jdk.incubator.http.*;

jshell> HttpClient httpClient = HttpClient.newHttpClient();
httpClient ==> jdk.incubator.http.HttpClientImpl@534df152
| created variable httpClient : HttpClient

jshell> HttpRequest httpRequest = HttpRequest.newBuilder().uri(new URI("https: //www.google.com")).GET().build();
httpRequest ==> https://www.google.com GET
| created variable httpRequest : HttpRequest

jshell> HttpResponse httpResponse = httpClient.send(httpRequest, HttpResponse.BodyHandler.asString());
httpResponse ==> jdk.incubator.http.HttpResponseImpl@609cd4d8
| created variable httpResponse : HttpResponse

jshell> System.out.println(httpResponse.statusCode());

jshell> System.out.println(httpResponse.body());
