An httprequest object


This method returns an httprequest object primed to make an HTTP/1.1 GET request to the specified URL. The request isn’t issued until either sendsync() or sendasync() is called on the returned httprequest object.

The URL must start with "http://" or "https://" — ie. it must include the colon and the double-slash.

The headers can be any supported by HTTP, for instance:

{ "Content-Type" : "text/xml" }

Note Headers are specified without the colon.
