The httpClient sends the request of an exchange to a Web Server using the HTTP protocol. Usually it will be globally used inside the transport. However, it is also possible to use it inside a proxy to give the proxy an individual configuration for its outgoing HTTP connection that is different from the global configuration in the transport.

Can be used in

spring:beans, api, bean, if, interceptor, internalProxy, proxy, registration, request, response, serviceProxy, soapProxy, stompProxy, swaggerProxy, transport and wsStompReassembler
