In my Eclipse RCP application I'd like to let the user choose some proxy settings. So I thought about the solution of Lars using the Eclipse Network Manager and the IProxyServce ( http://swik.net/EasyEclipse/Planet+Eclipse/Lars+Vogel:+Re-us ing+the+Eclipse+proxy+preference+settings+in+your+Eclipse+RC P+application/dd28b).
It seems that every connection to the internet must explicitly call the select() method of that service to find out, if the specific site is enabled.
But how about 3rd party libraries that don't know about the IProxyService, or even are not Eclipse stuff? If those try to access the internet, they don't use a proxy (and fail if the app is behind a firewall).
Are there solutions for that case?
