Spring HTTP Invoker and HTTP Forwarding Proxy
I am designing a thick client application that needs to do some simple remoting against a spring-enabled web application. One of the requirements for the client is to support forwarding proxies (similar to how one sets up Internet Explorer). I would like to use Spring's HTTP invoker but I am unclear if this protocol will cause problems with real-world HTTP proxies. My understanding is that these HTTP proxies generally have issues when the body of the HTTP request is not used in the way that they expect (param1=value1¶m2=value2).
In looking at the HTTP request that comes from the HTTP invoker I can see that Spring, is in fact, putting the spring-specific invocation as part of the body.
Does anyone have any real-world cases of using the HTTP invoker with forwarding proxies?
Thanks very much!
