Rome Fetcher, Java Apis to retrieve RSS Feeds

clipped from

Rome Fetcher

The Rome Fetcher (see modules/fetcher) allows the retrieval of feeds via HTTP. It supports HTTP conditional gets (ie: last modified and ETag handling) and GZip encoded feeds. It should enable user to write aggregators that follow the Atom aggregator behaviour recommendations

As with the rest of Rome, the Fetcher subproject is ultra-lean - it requires no new dependencies over the requirements for Rome.
