Date Thu, 20 Mar 2008 05:01:44 GMT

different domains and networks which are controlled by proxies and 

My concerns are,
i) The applet should be able to send requests to external websites thru 
the proxy (if any proxy exists).
ii) The applet should be able to modify the request header fields, such as

When I try using normal URLConnection from java.io package, the applet is 
able to inherit the proxy settings from the browser and send the requests

Can anybody tell me, is this possible by using Apache HttpClient?. And if 
so, please specify the version.

It would be a great help, if somebody could advise on this.
