Remember playing with this 2 yrs back (2005...). Was writing an
Eclipse RCP client at that time and Eclipse doesnt support pac
scripts, only proxy hostnames and ports. So we used this like a pre-
processor to update these fields into the conncection params for the
Eclipse Auto-Update plugin
it seems that
- Java writes it's own functions to implement helper functions
required by PAC files.
- and dnsResolve, isResolvable, isInNet functions are not correctly defined.
Considering my limited interest in Java, I haven't gotten around to to
test these things. I also could not find the source code for the
package java.net (I didn't look hard enough though, again due to my
lack of interest in Java) which implements this API.
If somebody can write a test program, we can probably add it to
pactester SVN and put a link to Java API in pactester documentation.
