 * A client-side request director.
 * The director decides which steps are necessary to execute a request.
 * It establishes connections and optionally processes redirects and
 * authentication challenges. The director may therefore generate and
 * send a sequence of requests in order to execute one initial request.
 * @since 4.0
public interface RequestDirector {

     * Executes a request.
     * <br/>Note:
     * For the time being, a new director is instantiated for each request.
     * This is the same behavior as for <code>HttpMethodDirector
     * in HttpClient 3.
     * @param target    the target host for the request.
     *                  Implementations may accept <code>null
     *                  if they can still determine a route, for example
     *                  to a default target or by inspecting the request.
     * @param request   the request to execute
     * @param context   the context for executing the request
     * @return  the final response to the request.
     *          This is never an intermediate response with status code 1xx.
     * @throws HttpException            in case of a problem
     * @throws IOException              in case of an IO problem
     *                                     or if the connection was aborted
    HttpResponse execute(HttpHost target, HttpRequest request, HttpContext context)
        throws HttpException, IOException;
