I am trying to set the properties so that i can reach URL's using the Java URL class but usually i use this if there is a proxy
but after visiting some sites they said that if i want to connect to a URL outside a firewall(not sure if proxy and firewall are the same thing) i must do this and not the above code i listed but the one below
The thing is i can't seem to find any information on Sun's site or on google using the firewallHost property. Currently i don't use a firewall so i can't really test this code out and would really appreciate any insight from anyone about this.
I also have a feeling that the firewallHost property is an old property that isn't used anymore but the thing is i can't confirm it.
From what i know is that if i have to reach a url via a proxy i would usually use the first code i listed above but what about reaching a url via a firewall. Aren't the codes the same as the first code i listed above?? Someone correct me if i am wrong
If they are not what is the correct way to do it? Links to sites or sample codes would be helpful
