Akeneo vs HTTP client

What is the difference (if any) between an Alumio Akeneo Client and a HTTP client that is set up for a connection to the Akeneo API? Would they have different use cases?

@kjetil there is a legacy Akeneo connector with limited functionality that utilizes these Akeneo HTTP clients.

Personally, I’d use a regular HTTP client (in combination with the Akeneo template if desired). The Akeneo Client is used for the legacy Akeneo connector. The downside to using this type of connection is that you are unable to consume any endpoints other than the ones supported by the legacy connector. The other downside is that the legacy connector components does not work with the HTTP clients.
