In this kit, we're going to see how to setting the host header in java httpClient with step steps.Instead of setting the Header on each and every request, we can also configure it as a default header on the Client itself: Header header = new BasicHeader(HttpHeaders. CONTENT_TYPE, "application/json").An HTTP Client. An HttpClient can be used to send requests and retrieve their responses. An HttpClient is created through a builder . The builder can be used to configure per-client state, like: the preferred protocol version ( HTTP/1.1 or HTTP/2 ), whether to follow redirects, a proxy, an authenticator, etc.HTTP Requests are messages which are sent by the client or user to initiate an action on the server.A URI is a uniform resource identifier while a URL is a uniform resource locator. Hence every URL is a URI, abstractly speaking, but not every URI is a URL. This is because there is another subcategory of URIs, uniform resource names (URNs), which name resources but do not specify how to locate them.
