I'm looking for a good reference source or some advice on how to configure stand-alone Java applications for Proxy Server access to a https site. Currently I'm having some difficulties setting up the Java https system properties for proxy server authentication (username and password). Here's a sample Java command line I'm using to set the system properties for proxy server access:

java -DproxySet=true -Dhttps.proxyHost= -Dhttps.proxyPort=3128 HelloProxyServer

Any recommendations or tips? Thanks in advance!

I don't know if this will help or not since they problem may be with HTTPS (and this is a whole other beast). I know you have to send a CONNECT header first before any other traffic and then setup an authenticator in your java app.

Apparently, java expects you to set up one authenticator for all proxy connections (as opposed to setting something in the HTTPUrlConnection clas which seems more logical to me).

To Do this create:

public class MyAuthenticator extends Authenticator
protected PasswordAuthentication
return new PasswordAuthentication

Somewhere in your startup place:

Authenticator.setDefault(new MyAuthenticator());

I hope this is what you were asking for.
