Here is a snipet of code that I'm using to authenticate to our corporate proxy server.  I can retrieve pages no problem, but I would like to incorporate this concept into my other project which utilized httpclient to log into a web-mail server programatically and check for new messages.  My question is how to use httpclient in this context because the below snipet is using HttpURLConnection.

try{
            Properties systemProperties = System.getProperties();

            String url = "http://eng.mail.ru/",
                         proxy = "proxyserverhere",
                         port = "80",
                         username = "usernamehere",
                         password = "passwordhere";

            Authenticator.setDefault(new SimpleAuthenticator(username, password));
            URL server = new URL(url);
            systemProperties.setProperty("http.proxyHost",proxy);
            systemProperties.setProperty("http.proxyPort",port);
            HttpURLConnection connection = (
            HttpURLConnection)server.openConnection();
            connection.connect();
            InputStream in = connection.getInputStream();
            BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(in));
            String line = new String();
            while((line=br.readLine())!=null)
            {
                System.out.println(line);
            }
           
        }
        catch(Exception e){e.printStackTrace();}


In my other program, I'm doing the following:

PostMethod post = new PostMethod("http://eng.mail.ru/");
int responseCode = httpclient.executeMethod(post);

how could these be combined????

Thanks,
David

Probably not that easily. I would configure the same parameters on the HttpClient

Yeah, you're probably right.  Doing this through the httpClient itself seems the way to go.

Thanks,
