HTTP URL Connection Proxy call(URGENT)

I'm doing a HTTPS POST from my application for a payment module to a 3rd party service and getting a Response back which I`m processing.

I`m sending them Credit card information and getting a token back which is stored on our end.

The implementation is done and now I have received information that, since the application is PCI-DSS(Payment Card Industry-Data Security Standard) compliant, I`m supposed to do a proxy submit, i.e. it should not go through our server.

Ive attached the code Im using to do this. My question is if I use a HttpsURLConnection as follows, is the call done directly to the Proxy or through the server the application is running on.

Consider Paul's rocket mass heater.
