Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3706) support for proxy
Date Wed, 19 Dec 2007 10:01:06 GMT


Rick McGuire commented on GERONIMO-3706:

I was thinking along the same lines as you.  I also believe that is the natural solution given
the mina architecture.  Swapping out one filter for the other seems like it's the correct
thing to do, since the characteristics of the stream change once the connect operator is finished.
 It also means the upstream client need not be aware that anything other than a simple socket
connection is taking place.  

I have one question about the tunneling.  Am I correct in assuming that when SSL tunneling
is being used, that the posted HTTP requests are normal request messages rather than the full
URL messages used when direct proxy communications are used?

> Proxy support is a critical feature for HTTP clients.  I'd like to have AsyncHttpClient
support proxy.  The following would be considered as the basic features:
> - Enabling connecting through proxies for http and https targets
> - Exclusion (domains that should not go through proxies)
> - Allowing proxy related configuration on AsyncHttpClient
> - Support for proxy authentication, at least for Basic authentication (and perhaps Digest
> There are things like SOCKS support, etc., but the above will be a good start.  Thoughts?
