Our site is hosted in a tier 1 data centre, in which inbound and outbound connections are heavily restricted. For connections to external services, our provider requires us to use a proxy.
Presumably your API is still compatible with the OOTB Java proxy mechanisms (http://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/doc...ies.html),
so we could set a JVM-wide proxy which the AutoUpdate service would then use? This wouldn't allow us to use a specific proxy only for 51 Degrees, so we will need to check if this has an impact on any other services we are using.
