Enum HttpClient.Redirect

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<HttpClient.Redirect>, Constable
Enclosing class:

public static enum HttpClient.Redirect
extends Enum<HttpClient.Redirect>
Defines the automatic redirection policy.

The automatic redirection policy is checked whenever a 3XX response code is received. If redirection does not happen automatically, then the response, containing the 3XX response code, is returned, where it can be handled manually.

Redirect policy is set through the Builder.followRedirects method.

Implementation Note:
When automatic redirection occurs, the request method of the redirected request may be modified depending on the specific 30X status code, as specified in RFC 7231. In addition, the 301 and 302 status codes cause a POST request to be converted to a GET in the redirected request.
