Subject Re: HTTP proxy problem with wsdl-first client
Date Wed, 07 May 2014 10:14:53 GMT
I was wondering why you can't (or don't want to) configure the
http.proxy setting once per VM.
I think that would be a simpler and more maintainable solution because
it would separate your scenario configuration from the runtime

If you want to configure the proxy setting in your scenario directly,
you can define a suitable http conduit with the desired proxy setting,
as described in
