I have a requirement where I need to detect proxy of the system on which web app is deployed and use detected proxy and its port .
I have found java.net.useSystemProxies , through which we can achieve this. I have used this property and below code
in standalone java program with main method. On running the standalone java program, the proxy and its port gets detected as expected.
However when I use the same piece of code in junit and in web app , it doesnt work, it doesnt detect the proxy . It displays as DIRECT connection . Btw I am using spring .
To set this property for junit and spring container , I pass it using below code
When I sysout in junit / in web app , it properly reflects the value which is set in context.xml as shown above .But it doesnt detect the proxy and its port. Its detects as DIRECT connection , where in it should get the proxy existing on system.
I am struggling very hard to get it . If any one could help me achieving or way to troubleshoot it , will be very helpful.
thanks in advance
