        Description

        Java Web Start 1.5 lost the possibility to adjust proxy settings
        independently from Java Plugin. This was possible for Java2SE
        1.4.2 (and earlier).

        1. Java2SE 1.4.2
        ----------------
        1.1 Java Web Start
        ------------------
        For Java Web Start 1.4.2 it was possible to adjust Proxy settings
        in "Java Web Start Application Manager":

        "c:\j2sdk1.4.2\jre\javaws\javaws"
        File -> Preferences -> General -> Proxies
         (x) Manual
         adjust Proxy host, proxy port and no-proxy list

        For Java Web Start the following properties are written in file
        "deployment" properties:

        deployment.javaws.proxy.settings=MANUAL
        deployment.javaws.proxy.http=<fully qualified proxy-host>
        deployment.javaws.proxy.httpport=<proxy-port>
        deployment.javaws.proxy.httpproxyoverride=


        1.2 Java Plugin
        ---------------
        For Java Plugin 1.4.2 the proxy configuration was done in the
        "Java(TM) Plug-in Control Panel" (in Windows Control Panel)
        on the "Proxies" tab in the "Protocol Address Port" table.


        For Java Plugin the following "deployment" properties are written:

        javaplugin.proxy.settings=http\=<fully qualified proxy-host>\:<proxy-port>
        javaplugin.proxy.usebrowsersettings=false
        javaplugin.proxy.bypass=


        So, in Java2SE 1.4.2 Java Web Start and Java Plugin could have proxy
        settings independently from each other.


        2. Java SE 5.0
        --------------
        Beginning with Java SE 5.0 the "deployment.javaws.proxy.*" properties
        do not seem to be regarded any longer.

        The "Java Plug-in Control Panel" became the "Java Control Panel",
        where Proxy settings can be made in
        Java Control Panel -> General -> Network Settings
         (x) Use proxy server

        For Java Web Start the "Java Web Start Application Manager" became
        the "Java Application Cache Viewer" and is called via
        "c:\jdk1.5.0\jre\bin\javaws".
        The Edit->Preferences dialog now directly calls the
        "Java Control Panel".

        So, there is but one unified place for proxy configuration settings.
