 * HTTP GET method.
 * <p>
 * The HTTP GET method is defined in section 9.3 of
 * <a href="http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2616.txt">RFC2616:
 * <blockquote>
 * The GET method means retrieve whatever information (in the form of an
 * entity) is identified by the Request-URI. If the Request-URI refers
 * to a data-producing process, it is the produced data which shall be
 * returned as the entity in the response and not the source text of the
 * process, unless that text happens to be the output of the process.
 * </blockquote>
 * </p>
 * @since 4.0
public class HttpGet extends HttpRequestBase {

    public final static String METHOD_NAME = "GET";
    public HttpGet() {

    public HttpGet(final URI uri) {

     * @throws IllegalArgumentException if the uri is invalid. 
    public HttpGet(final String uri) {

    public String getMethod() {
        return METHOD_NAME;
