Subject [Fwd: Scrape: doesn't respect http.proxy settings, redirects, etc;] (fwd)
Date Mon, 16 Jul 2001 16:33:50 GMT
It does use the, that is the super class.  The
Conncet and disconnect are abstract classes that have to be written.  As
far as redirects go there is a setFollowRedirects method that I didn't
bother with since automatically following redirects is supposed to be the
default behavior.  As far as using a proxy, there is another abstract
method usingProxy that I believe would have to be flushed out.  Currently
it simply returns false.  I imagine that to use a proxy, an attribute
would have to be added to the page tag to determine if a proxy is to be
used and then the usingProxy method called.  I am not very strong in this
area and I would have no place to test it currently, so if maybe you would
like to flush out the usingProxy method and submit the fix to the
taglibs-dev list I would be happy to add the change to cvs.

I figured this one out:  Scrape doesn't follow redirects, use system proxy settings, etc.
because it has its own implementation of HTTPURLConnection.  Was there a reason not to use
the standard object from  If not, it'd be relatively simple to fix...
