      Description

      The 'java.net.http' package was added in JDK 9, and contains the new HTTP Client API, as proposed by JEP 110 ( JDK-8042950 ). Standardizing the API will be deferred to a future release. The API will be included in JDK 9 as an incubating feature ( see incubator modules JDK-8169768). As such, all types that are currently in the 'jdk.net.http' package should be moved to an appropriate namespace, as proposed by incubator modules, so that they are clearly identifiable as an incubating feature. No types will remain in the 'jdk.net.http' namespace, therefore the package is to be removed.

      This effectively removes the new HTTP Client API from Java SE, but it remains as an incubating feature in JDK 9.
