Spring Cloud Netflix will automatically create the HTTP client used by Ribbon, Feign, and
Zuul for you. However you can also provide your own HTTP clients customized how you please
yourself. To do this you can either create a bean of type
ClosableHttpClient if you
are using the Apache Http Cient, or
OkHttpClient if you are using OK HTTP.
When you create your own HTTP client you are also responsible for implementing the correct connection management strategies for these clients. Doing this improperly can result in resource management issues.
