How to download a file via HTTP GET and HTTP POST in Java without using any external libraries

Apart from uploading a file to a HTTP server endpoint, another common task for a Java HTTP client is to download a file from a HTTP server. Even though there are many Java external libraries to help us do so, using the facilities in the Java standard runtime installation is not difficult. Furthermore, we will be able to keep our Java application leaner if we can download files without additional dependencies.

In case you need a reference, this is how to download a file via HTTP GET and HTTP POST in Java without using any external libraries.

How to download a file via HTTP POST and HTTP GET with Python 3 requests library

When you are building a HTTP client with Python 3, you could be coding it to upload a file to a HTTP server or download a file from a HTTP server.

Previously, we discussed how to upload a file and some data through HTTP multipart in Python 3 using the requests library. In this post, let’s see how we can download a file via HTTP POST and HTTP GET.

How to send HTTP POST request with Java without using any external libraries

I need to create a Java solution that will be able to send some bulk processing information back to a HTTP server endpoint. The Java solution should be as lean as possible, using as many facilities that Java provides out of the box. Luckily for me, Java do provides the java.net.HttpURLConnection class for me to build my solution. This post details a proof of concept which I did to get to know more about the java.net.HttpURLConnection class.

In this proof of concept, I create a Java console program that will hit the php endpoint which I had created earlier to proof that I can use jQuery to push a dynamically generated file to the web browser based on the user’s input.

Uploading large HTTP multipart request with System.Net.HttpWebRequest in C#

My previous post described a method of sending a file and some data via HTTP multipart post by constructing the HTTP request with the System.IO.MemoryStream class before writing the contents to the System.Net.HttpWebRequest class. This method of sending our HTTP request will work only if we can restrict the total size of our file and data.
