      Description

      As can be seen at http://hc.apache.org/httpclient-3.x/ the old commons-httpclient project is now end of life, and is no longer being actively developed. It has been deprecated in favour of the HttpComponents http://hc.apache.org/ httpclient library for many years now.

      The attached patch ports maven-javadoc-plugin to use org.apache.httpcomponents:httpclient instead of commons-httpclient:commons-httpclient

      All tests still pass with this patch applied.

      The rationale for this patch is that in Fedora Linux we are trying to retire the old jakarta-commons-httpclient library from the distribution. We want to lower our maintenance burden and susceptibility to bugs by only having the latest (and actively developed) version of the library in Fedora. Here is the Fedora bug report: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=717238
