You can change the Executor (it's one parameter of the builder) to use whatever 
executors you want so you can shutdown that executor as you want.
This should fixed (1).

Also once you update to Java 19/21, it seems a good scenario to test the 
executor that spawn virtual threads instead of platform threads.

Some word of caution about shutting down the executor:
If you know that the client is no longer used, and there are
no requests in progress, what RĂ©mi suggests should be fine.
Otherwise shutting down the executor when the client is still
in use could lead to undefined behaviour, including not
being able to complete the CompletableFutures that have
been returned by `sendAsync` - or which `send` calls have

This has been fixed in JDK 19 by JDK-8277969, but otherwise,
and especially on previous versions of the JDK, you should
make sure that all operations have terminated before shutting
down the executor (even gracefully).

Using virtual threads should be fine - as long as they are not
pooled :-)
