AW: [ecf-dev] ECF and equinox p2

Hi Scott, 
I have quite a large range of devices and private networks in my office where I could perform the tests once I am back to Zurich next week. Setting up different types of proxies in one of them and testing against a machine in a different subnet should be fine.

So that everyone is aware...a lot of what is needed here for the equinox
provisioning support is testing of the existing filetransfer API (and
testing multiple individual providers of that API).  As you can probably
imagine, it's rather difficult to test (e.g.) proxies when one is not on
a proxied network :).

If others out there have access to machines behind a proxy, PLEASE speak
up in response to this request.  You could help a tremendous amount for
both ECF and the Equinox Provisioning work simply by running existing
ECF file transfer test cases (those in
tests/org.eclipse.ecf.tests.filetransfer) on your behind-the-firewall
system(s)...and help even more by writing some additional test cases to
test your specific proxy configuration, https server, authentication
scenario, etc.  To summarize, the best ways to help would be:

1) Running existing ECF filetransfer test cases behind proxy configuration
2) Writing additional/new test cases and contributing them to ECF
3) Setting up a local proxy configuration (or https server) and doing 1
and/or 2 above.  If you can do this, please consider communicating with
others on the ECF newsgroup and/or mailing list so that a good coverage
of types/models of proxies/web servers are used.

Please let all know if you are able/willing to contribute to this, and I
will coordinate getting the appropriate/necessary information.

Here BTW, is a project set file that includes all the relevant ECF
sources (including the existing filetransfer test code as a junit plugin
