Proxy Settings and JDeveloper

By default, JDeveloper uses the proxy settings from the default browser on the same machine, adding localhost and to the list of proxy exceptions. If you have problems making connections from JDeveloper, for example, connecting to an application server or a SOAP server that is on the same machine as JDeveloper, you may need to change the proxy server settings you use.

For example, if you are connecting to an IP address behind a proxy server, and your machine is also behind the same proxy server, then make sure that JDeveloper's web proxy preferences exclude the IP address you are trying to connect to.

When you use the TCP packet monitor, the packet monitor is itself a proxy and any traffic to be monitored by it is routed through it, just as though it was a normal proxy server. If you already have a proxy set in JDeveloper, the packet monitor will make sure that the traffic goes through the original proxy after it has been passed through the monitor.

To exclude an IP address:

  1. Choose Tools | Preferences, and select Web Browser/Proxy.
  2. Add the IP address to the Exceptions list, separating entries with a |.

If you need to turn off JDeveloper's proxy settings completely, do the following.

To turn off use of the browser proxy server:

  1. Choose Tools | Preferences, and select Web Browser/Proxy.
  2. Deselect Use HTTP Proxy Server.

For help with the Web Browser\Proxy dialog, press F1 or click Help from within the dialog.
