As HTTP/2 adoption is already done by some of the web servers and the browsers, it's time for developers to adopt HTTP client libraries to support HTTP/2. I came across“OkHttp” Java client with HTTP/2 support.

  • Supports for both synchronous blocking and asynchronous non-blocking calls.
  • Silently handles the common connection problems. If the services hosted in multiple IP addresses, OkHttp client checks for other alternate IP addresses if the first address fails to respond.
