Subject Re: Https, ProxyAuthentication and HttpClient
Date Thu, 29 May 2003 14:49:04 GMT

There are not any existing examples that combine everything you're 
looking for but you should be able to piece it together from the following:

1) Take a look at the authentication documentation, 
http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/httpclient/authentication.html.  This 
covers authentication including with proxies.
2) There is no documenation currently with HTTPS specifics, but it 
mostly just requires JSSE (or something similar with a little more 
work).  If you are running on a pre 1.4 JRE you need to add JSSE to your 
classpath and register the JSSE provider.
3) If you are referring to session cookies these are handled by 
HttpClient and stored in the HttpClient's state. Take a look at 

Also on a general note, be sure that you are using the Beta 1 code.  The 
official distribution has not been added to the web site yet, but the 
current CVS code as well as the latest nightly build are equivalent to 
Beta 1.
