44  * Implements the HTTP HEAD method.
45  * <p>
46  * The HTTP HEAD method is defined in section 9.4 of
47  * <a HREF="http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2616.txt">RFC2616</a>:
48  * <blockquote>
49  * The HEAD method is identical to GET except that the server MUST NOT
50  * return a message-body in the response. The metainformation contained
51  * in the HTTP headers in response to a HEAD request SHOULD be identical
52  * to the information sent in response to a GET request. This method can
53  * be used for obtaining metainformation about the entity implied by the
54  * request without transferring the entity-body itself. This method is
55  * often used for testing hypertext links for validity, accessibility,
56  * and recent modification.
