    Post Unable to call setRedirectStrategy() method through object DefaultHttpClient Class

    I have imported following JAR files:-
    1. HttpClient4.1.2
    2. Httpcore4.1.2
    3. HttpClient-Cache4.1.2

    Also explicitly importing following file:-
    1. import org.apache.http.impl.client.DefaultHttpClient;

    Still I am unable to Call setRedirectStrategy() method using an Object of Class DefaultHttpClient.

    Root Cause:-
    setRedirectStrategy() method is defined under AbstractHttpClient Class which is extented by DefaultHttpClient class. But still unable to call the required method.

    Snap Shot of the code:-
    public static void main(String[] args) throws ClientProtocolException,
    IOException, NoSuchAlgorithmException, KeyManagementException {

    DefaultHttpClient httpclient = new DefaultHttpClient();
    "http.protocol.allow-circular-redirects", true);
    httpclient.getParams().setParameter(ClientPNames.C OOKIE_POLICY,
    .setParameter(ClientPNames.HANDLE_REDIRECTS, true);

    httpclient.setRedirectStrategy(new Redirector()); //HERE IS THE PROBLEM

    Error displayed:-
    The method setRedirectStrategy(Redirector) is undefined for the type DefaultHttpClient

    Default Re: Unable to call setRedirectStrategy() method through object DefaultHttpClient Clas

    The signature for setRedirectStrategy is:
    public void setRedirectStrategy(RedirectStrategy redirectStrategy)

    Unless a Redirector implements RedirectStrategy (which the error implies it doesn't) then your call is indeed wrong.
