When I try to build my project with maven, I get a build error that says, "package org.apache.http does not exist."How can I correct this problem?

It most likely means that you have forgotten to include some library in the dependencies in your pom.xml file.

Looking at the package name, it's probably Apache HttpClient that's missing.
