Hi Elijah,

To test HTTP proxy support for the net.jini.jeri.http transport 

It's listed under JIRA as issue RIVER-306 

Sun originally had a Squid http proxy server on their network, it's 
hostname was jiniproxy, it's hardcoded into one of the jtreg tests; 

I want to have all tests running before releasing AR2.  In order to 
stimulate a more agile development model, were trying to make the 
integration test suite and the jtreg unit and regression tests more 
developer friendly (easier to setup and run using ant).  The junit test 
framework has also been adopted recently.

Once testing is working properly, I'd like to look at the implementation 
of jini over http networks based on the work that Mark Brouwer did in 
the Seven project.  He made a presentation at JCM10, the slides for 
which are still available. If you want to check the Seven project out, 
add the following to your Internet host table (/etc/hosts) as DNS lookup 
no longer works:  www.cheiron.org scm.cheiron.org issue.cheiron.org

After that I'd like to play around with NIO and DEFLATE compression for 
serialization and http classserver performance improvements.

I recently stumbled across a complete Java implementation of Kerberos 
Server and client software, I'm thinking there may be benefits for River 
running with a default authorisation setup, however it's GPL2, so I'd 
have to ask if it can be relicensed first.
