Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3706) support for proxy
Date Mon, 07 Jan 2008 20:24:33 GMT


Sangjin Lee commented on GERONIMO-3706:

1) That sounds fine...

2) I'm thinking the following might be a good set (gleaning from various http clients/systems):
- host name (e.g. "")
- domain (e.g. "")
- IP address (e.g. "")
- IP subnet; i.e. IP address + net mask (e.g. "")

I think the first three are critical, but the last is good to have...

3) I think a *single* delimited string would be just fine (e.g. "|" or ";", etc.).  If we
force the domain name to start with ".", we can determine whether something is a domain name
as opposed to a hostname unambiguously.  I don't think it's critical to have incremental changes
to the exclusion list...

One key issue is whether we want to resolve the IP address (or conversely do an ns lookup)
when we perform the match.  For example, if "localhost" is specified in the configuration,
and the hostname is "", do we want to match that by performing a lookup, or do we
want to force users to specify both forms?

> 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?
