eclipse – Can't import org.apache.http.HttpResponse in Android Studio

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I want to use these libraries in Android Studio:

import org.apache.http.HttpResponse;
import org.apache.http.client.HttpClient;
import org.apache.http.client.methods.HttpGet;
import org.apache.http.impl.client.DefaultHttpClient;

I am following a video tutorial in which the tutor is using Eclipse so I know it works.

But what additional things/libraries do I have to add to Android Studio in order to use them?

How to&Answers:

HttpClient was deprecated in Android 5.1 and is removed from the Android SDK in Android 6.0. While there is a workaround to continue using HttpClient in Android 6.0 with Android Studio, you really need to move to something else. That “something else” could be:

Or, depending upon the nature of your HTTP work, you might choose a library that supports higher-order operations (e.g., Retrofit for Web service APIs).

In a pinch, you could enable the legacy APIs, by having useLibrary 'org.apache.http.legacy' in your android closure in your module’s build.gradle file. However, Google has been advising people for years to stop using Android’s built-in HttpClient, and so at most, this should be a stop-gap move, while you work on a more permanent shift to another API.

Answer:

HttpClient is deprecated in sdk 23.

You have to move on URLConnection or down sdk to 22

Still you need HttpClient with update gradle sdk 23

You have to add the dependencies of HttpClient in app/gradle as

dependencies {
    compile fileTree(include: ['*.jar'], dir: 'libs')
    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.0.1'

    compile 'org.jbundle.util.osgi.wrapped:org.jbundle.util.osgi.wrapped.org.apache.http.client:4.1.2'
    ...
}

Answer:

Main build.gradle – /build.gradle

buildscript {
    ...
    dependencies {
        classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:1.3.1' 
        // Versions: http://jcenter.bintray.com/com/android/tools/build/gradle/
    }
    ...
}

Module specific build.gradle – /app/build.gradle

android {
    compileSdkVersion 23
    buildToolsVersion "23.0.1"
    ...
    useLibrary 'org.apache.http.legacy'
    ...
}

Answer:

According to the Apache site this is the Gradle dependency you need to include, if you use Android API 23 or newer:

dependencies {
    compile group: 'cz.msebera.android' , name: 'httpclient', version: '4.4.1.1'
}

Answer:

in case you are going to start development, go fot OkHttp from square, otherwise if you need to keep your previous code running, then add legacy library to your project dependencies:

dependencies {
    compile group: 'org.apache.httpcomponents' , name: 'httpclient-android' , version: '4.3.5.1'
}

Answer:

Use This:-

compile 'org.jbundle.util.osgi.wrapped:org.jbundle.util.osgi.wrapped.org.apache.http.client:4.1.2'
