I am attempting to do the Stock Quote Web service tutorial that comes with WSAD 5.1. I am getting the a java.net.ConnectException when attempting to connect to the Yahoo! Finance site to get the IBM stock quote. The problem persists even after my adding the suggested system properties to the server's environment tab:

proxySet true
proxyHost <proxy_server>
proxyPort <proxy_port>

Actually, if I copy-paste the URL
to an Internet Explorer session I get a response back.


This makes me think the problem is WSAD-specific.

Has anyone encountered this is the past? Any clues?

Thx in advance!

Seems I've overcome this particular problem.

It is true that one cannot specify the proxy authentication credentials (userid, password) in a declarative manner from within WSAD. You can do it programmatically though: create a subclass of java.net.Authenticator with userid and password the ones you use for proxy authenntication purposes, and set default authenticator to that class.

Currently, I am getting a different error (a 404 -- see new posting).
