use Zend\Http\ClientStatic;

// Simple GET request
$response = ClientStatic::get('http://example.org');

// More complex GET request, specifying query string 'foo=bar' and adding a
// custom header to request JSON data be returned (Accept: application/json)
$response = ClientStatic::get(
    'http://example.org',
    array( 'foo' => 'bar' ),
    array( 'Accept' => 'application/json')
);

// We can also do a POST request using the same format.  Here we POST
// login credentials (username/password) to a login page:
$response = ClientStatic::post('https://example.org/login.php', array(
    'username' => 'foo',
    'password' => 'bar',
));

Configuration Options

It is not possible to set configuration options on the Zend\Http\Client instance encapsulated by Zend\Http\ClientStatic. To perform a HTTP request which requires non-default configurations, please use Zend\Http\Client directly.

Available Methods

get

get(string $url, array $query = array(), array $headers = array(), mixed $body = null)

Returns Zend\Http\Response

post
