Calling a Locator in java processor - java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: DATE_PATTERNS

I'm building a custom java processor calling a Locator service for geocoding, following the example given in

Using the following java code:
    Locator locator = new Locator(DEFUALT_LOCATOR_URL, credentials);
    LocatorFindParameters parameters = new LocatorFindParameters(ADDRESS);
    parameters.setMaxLocations(10); // number of results to return
    List<LocatorGeocodeResult> results = locator.find(parameters);

To get it compiling en running,  a dependency for HTTP client needs to be added to the POM,
the one also used in the ARCGIS 10.1.1 Runtime

However on calling the Locator find method the following exceptions is raised:
java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: DATE_PATTERNS
at com.esri.core.internal.io.handler.e.<init>(Unknown Source)
at com.esri.core.internal.io.handler.g.newInstance(Unknown Source)
at org.apache.http.cookie.CookieSpecRegistry.getCookieSpec(CookieSpecRegistry.java:110)
at org.apache.http.impl.client.AbstractHttpClient.execute(AbstractHttpClient.java:1035)

at com.esri.core.internal.tasks.a.c.c.a(Unknown Source)
at com.esri.core.tasks.ags.geocode.Locator.find(Unknown Source)

Locally on my development PC,  I can resolve this exception by using an older httpclient version:

However on the target the exception still shows up in the karaf log en the GeoEvent processor effectively stops working.

Any hint on how to get this solved, or properly call a Locator within a java processor?
