findProxy property

void findProxy= (String f(Uri url))

Sets the function used to resolve the proxy server to be used for opening a HTTP connection to the specified url. If this function is not set, direct connections will always be used.

The string returned by f must be in the format used by browser PAC (proxy auto-config) scripts. That is either


for using a direct connection or

"PROXY host:port"

for using the proxy server host on port port.

A configuration can contain several configuration elements separated by semicolons, e.g.

"PROXY host:port; PROXY host2:port2; DIRECT"

The static function findProxyFromEnvironment on this class can be used to implement proxy server resolving based on environment variables.


set findProxy(String f(Uri url));
