Async Http Client Plugin

This plugin provides a shared dependency on the async-http-client library so that other plugins can co-operate when using this library.
Beside the dependency to the async library (, this plugin also provides a utility class to help you get the proxyserver instance that is correct for the current jenkins instance.

Typical config setup
  AsyncHttpClientConfig.Builder httpClientConfig =
          new AsyncHttpClientConfig.Builder().setRequestTimeoutInMs(25000)

For code which is running on the master and is happy to use a shared instance that will be shut down with Jenkins, as of 1.7.8, there is a singleton which keeps an instance configured for the current proxy server:


There is also a responsive mailing list for using the base async-http-client library at:\!forum/asynchttpclient\|\!forum/asynchttpclient (\!forum/asynchttpclient)
