I am trying to execute a java Program which attempts to copy a file from internet URL to my local disk.

I am using the following code for getting connection to the URL.



My system is connected to internet through proxy server. In ECLIPSE I have entered the proxy host, proxy port, proxy authentication details in the Windows --> Preferences --> Internet --> Proxy Settings window.

But when I execute the above Code,it displays an exception java.net.UnknownHostException.

Any ideas on how to connect to Internet URL from a system which is behind the Proxy Server ?

I dont think configuring the proxy setting in the eclipse would work.
I think it needs to be done in your java code instead.

Indeed.

Look at URL.openConnection(Proxy proxy).

Your Eclipse proxy settings are not used in your java code.
