In many scenarios it would be trivial to inject a Betamax wrapper around a standard HttpClient instance into the class-under-test. This would be simpler than spinning up a proxy server and could share all the same functionality.
Following recent refactoring this is almost trivial to implement so I might do so for 1.1
Proof of concept implementation for #40
more implementation for #40
preliminary doc changes for #40
Since SystemDefaultHttpClient exists I don't think there's any need for this.
whoops, that was completely the wrong issue I closed
#40 BetamaxHttpClient now respects ignoreHosts and ignoreLocalhost
#40 added `useProxy` property to Recorder to allow proxy to be disabled
#40 pick up `useProxy` from config
#40 document `useProxy` flag
#40 use `useProxy` in the test for BetamaxHttpClient
#40 quick test to ensure there are no problems with HttpBuilder
docs for #40
This is in master now (and deployed as Betamax 1.2-SNAPSHOT).
