Connection routing is described here

http://hc.apache.org/httpcomponents-client-4.5.x/tutorial/html/connmgmt
.html#d5e351

Essentially, an HTTP route represents an address of the target host
along with an optional list of addresses of intermediate proxies (or
hops) 

An address is either DNS + port or IP + port.

client -> target (direct route)
client -> proxy -> target (route by proxy)
client -> proxy (tunnel) -> target (tunneled route)
client -> proxy1 (tunnel) -> proxy2 (tunnel) -> target 
(complex tunneled route)

It should go on HTTPCLIENT. Please do feel to submit improvements by
all of means.
