Subject RE: Auto-detecting proxy settings in a standalone Java app
Date Wed, 27 Oct 2004 20:21:20 GMT
Hi all,

I followed this up on the JDIC forums...

Maybe the people who followed this thread on this list might be interested 
in looking at it.  It discussed ways of accessing system-wide proxy 
settings.  In particular, HttpClient might want to use Java's reflection 
APIs to access the J2SE 5 ProxySelector class, and call the getDefault 
method (just like it already does to access socket options in J2SE 1.4).  
Using features when possible, as it were.

Thanks again to all,
