Have you debugged this issue at all?  See my comment in the bug.

Subject: HTTPSender and proxying [Jira ID AXIS-1349]


I'm running axis 1.2 beta and I noticed that it's request could not be
proxied. Delving into the Axis code didn't get me very far :-) and some
searching eventually led me to AXIS-1349 which exactly nails the problem.
Since the bug is still open I guess it's not yet fixed. The workarround
suggested in the bugreport is to use the commons http client. 

So my question is twofold : 

1) are there known issues or gotchas with switching to the commons http
client ? In long forgotten times I have been toying with the beta (or
something unstable because there was no release yet) of 2.0 and noticed
quite a lot of problems for my simple needs. I wonder if the project has in
the mean time matured. 

2) Inquisitive as I am,  if this library is good, why is commons http client
not the default ? Should HttpSender not be scrapped and just replaced ? If
not, why ? I remember reading about having the two http implementations on
the Axis site, in the early days before 1.0 was released. Now I can't even
find a reference to it anymore .. or is it just because it's monday today
;-) ?
