Description

The abstract base class for HTTPRequestHandlers created by HTTPServer.

Derived classes must override the handleRequest() method. Furthermore, a HTTPRequestHandlerFactory must be provided.

A new HTTPRequestHandler object will be created for each new HTTP request that is received by the HTTPServer.
