Built-in proxy support in Client API?


Andy McCright
 

Hi all,
 
It might be too late to add this (if so, no worries), but I've been running into a few customer situations where customers are using HTTP/HTTPS proxy servers with their JAX-RS client APIs.  Today, proxy support is enabled, but requires vendor-specific properties.  Would it make sense to add some methods to ClientBuilder/Client/Configurable like proxyHost(String), proxyPort(int), proxyBasicAuth(String user, byte[] password), etc.?
 
Here is a relevant issue where this was previously discussed: https://github.com/jax-rs/api/issues/497
 
Thanks,
 
Andy
