Feature #1224

Updated by Matthieu Decorde almost 6 years ago

There is no Eclipse plugin to manage system proxy configuration for Mac OS X (contrary to Linux and Windows).

We need to manage system proxy.

h3. Solution 1

During the ApplicationWorkbenchAdvisor post startup, set ProxyService to "system".

h3. Validation test

The fix does not works.

h3. Solution 2

Set the ProxyService to "direct" and set server configuration using the OS proxy configuration (with java.net.ProxySelector).
The same method is use for R packages installation during the Mac OS X TXM installation. See #1116.

For TXM, the ProxyService is activated in the Application.activateProxyService() method during the first moments of TXM lifecycle in the run() method.
