Wondering how Eclipse implements proxy authentication....

Sit behind a company firewall that uses our NetId smartcard for authentication when calling the outside world via a proxy. Eclipse needs a host, port, provider equal to Manual, and Auth equals to false in my network setting to get at update sites. How is this implemented? Reason I ask is that I having trouble making NTML credentials with Apache HTTPClient and thought the Eclipse IDE likely has a Java implementation that I can learn from.

Likely answering my own question. But apparently the HTTPUrlConnection class does the credential stuff automatically as long as the http.proxyHost and http.proxyPort system properties are set. Just tested:
                String url = "<destination>", proxy = "<our proxy>", port = "8080";
		URL server = new URL(url);
		Properties systemProperties = System.getProperties();
		systemProperties.setProperty("http.proxyHost", proxy);
		systemProperties.setProperty("http.proxyPort", port);
		HttpURLConnection connection = (HttpURLConnection) server.openConnection();
		BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(connection.getInputStream()));
		String inputLine;
		while ((inputLine = in.readLine()) != null) 

Assuming Eclipse uses HTTPUrlConnection while HTTPClient doesn't.
