HttpClient: Target host must not be null, or set in parameters

If you have the following code failing:

HttpGet httpget = new HttpGet(“www.host.com”);

Then the error is pretty easy to solve:
The problem is that you have not added a protocol to the URL, so change it to:

HttpGet httpget = new HttpGet(“http://www.host.com”);

And then it will work as wanted.
