|JGit: HTTPS links over a proxy that requires authentication [message #1760610]

I am trying to make an RCP application, that downloads data files for proper operation from our git repository, proxy-aware. Right now, I have basic proxy settings (host/port) for HTTP, HTTPS, and SSH working. The application can execute clones and updates/pulls and I am using CCProxy to test and confirm that they are indeed being routed through that successfully. This uses the standard http/https.proxyHost and http/https.proxyPort variables.|
However, the problems come in when I configure CCProxy to require username/password authentication. Note that I have already tested with Firefox that the username/password are working and it goes through the proxy properly, so the proxy is properly set up.
As for JGit and the application itself, I have an authenticator set up as this answer shows: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1626549/authenticated-http-proxy-with-java/16340273#16340273
Once I did that, http.proxyUser and http.proxyPassword got through the proxy for an http: link (sending the clone/update commands an http: based repo link).
CCProxy monitor showed the request being routed successfully through the proxy.
However, when I use a url with https, not just http, for the clone/update operations I need, suddenly it stops working. I confirmed that the method getPasswordAuthentication isn't even being called, period.
My question is
1) Is this supposed to happen? If not then I may have something funny going on in the way I am using JGit
2) Otherwise, where exactly would I tell JGit to use proxy username/password information when the repository URL is being requested over HTTPS? I know it picks up host and port already for the proxy, and I know it has no problems with HTTP, and I am under the understanding that it uses the java.net libraries anyway so I figure it is just delegating to them and whatever makes them work with proxies will make JGit work with proxies, but I am completely stumped here. I don't know why with an https: style repository url it is skipping the configuration for a username/password for the proxy.
