    Question Trying to download page source in android but code requires a minimum of version 3 SDK but rest requires minimum 11

    I'm trying to download a web page source within android using Java, but else where in my program the minimum requirement for SDK within the Android manifest needs to be set at 11 but the below code (to download source) will only work when minimum SDK version is set to 3.

    Is there any changes you would suggest I make to the below code

      public void getHtml() throws ClientProtocolException, IOException
        {
            HttpClient httpClient = new DefaultHttpClient();
            HttpContext localContext = new BasicHttpContext();
            HttpGet httpGet = new HttpGet("WebSiteAddress");
            HttpResponse response = httpClient.execute(httpGet, localContext);
            String result = "";
     
            BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(
                new InputStreamReader(
                  response.getEntity().getContent()
                )
              );
     
            String line = null;
            while ((line = reader.readLine()) != null){
              result += line + "\n";
              Toast.makeText(activity.this, line.toString(), Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
     
            }
     
        }



    Code above requires minimum SDK version 3

    Rest of code requires minimum SDK version 11


    When I change minimum SDK in android manifest to 11 above code won't work

    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
