Java Proxy Check
Have you ever had the (mis-)fortune to have to run Java code behind an HTTP proxy? Or worse, having to have to go through a proxy for certain URLs, but not for others? Have you fought the syntax for defining proxy exceptions that differ between OSes and Java?
This tool won't help you fix your config, but it helps you to test things out quickly.
The project uses gradle, a simple
gradle build should create the jar in
A ready-to-run binary compiled with Java 1.7.0_51 is available here: http://www.lassitu.de/software/javaproxycheck/javaproxycheck.jar
proxycheck.jar can be run like this:
$ java -jar proxycheck.jar http://www.example.com https://secure.example.com
The output will list the URLs and the selection the system ProxySelector.select() method returns. You can interactively try out the various system properties like so:
$ java -Dhttps.proxyHost=proxy.example.com -Dhttps.proxyPort=3128 -jar build/libs/javaproxycheck.jar http://www.example.com https://secure.example.com http://www.example.com [DIRECT] https://secure.example.com [HTTP @ proxy.example.com:3128]
Java Proxy Settings
Java has built-in support for Windows, Mac OS X, and Gnome system proxy settings; on other platforms, you have to run Java programs with appropriate system properties specifying which proxies to use when. See the following documentation:
