titleImproved Tutorial at Eclipse

Jetty 6 and Jetty 7 HTTP clients are very similar, almost identical.
You may want to follow a detailed tutorial here for Jetty 7, which will be mostly valid for Jetty 6 too.

Below you can find the original Jetty 6 documentation.

The HttpClient is an implementation of the client API. It makes it easy to conduct exchanges with a server, and to process the responses. It can use either blocking or non-blocking connectors, the default is to use non-blocking. The HttpClient can also do SSL, use proxies and authentication.
