Why do you use BasicResponseHandler()? The 5 handler is doing that for you. That handler 4 is just an example and shouldn't be used 3 in real code.

You should either write your 2 own handler or call execute without a handler.

For 1 example,

        HttpResponse response = httpClient.execute(request);
        int statusCode = response.getStatusLine().getStatusCode();
        HttpEntity entity = response.getEntity();
        responseBody = entity.getContent();

        if (statusCode != 200) {
            // responseBody will have the error response

responseBody will always be null if an exception 8 is thrown while assigning a value to it.

besides 7 that it's specific behaviour of the implementation 6 - ie Apache HttpClient.

It looks like it 5 doesn't maintain any of the detailed information 4 in the exception (obviously).

I'd load up 3 the source code for HttpClient and debug 2 that.

but first check if there's anything 1 in the e.getCause()...

hope that helps.
