Returns the HTTP response for the given HTTP request.

This method is synchronous and blocks until the request has been sent and the response has been received.

The request process can be canceled by the means of the cancellation token. It is up to the implementer to verify that the cancellation token state is set to true during the operation. When set to true this indicates that a HTTP response is no longer needed. The return value then can be an ErrorInfo object with the error code Canceled.
