In short, I updated my jsvn subversion trunk. surprise - jsvn today builds using gradle, no longer ant. so for me new problems to start with - PROXY, always the same with proxy. with maven, with ant, with jsvn, with git, with mercury; well lets go with gradle. The first question: how to I inform gradle about the proxy-server:port to connect to and how to tell the proxy about username password and authentication scheme preferences, this because most of the time, negotiating an authenticationschema fails anyway due to the various flavors such work can have. For jsvn gradlew.bat I modified the java command to get the -Dhttp.proxy* switches set. It does not work, it fails, WireShark protocol analyzer shows is clearly: “Authentication Requuired”. So how do we pass to the down-load-wrapper code all this information: Taking the sources, in particular the wrapper, seeking for proxy, revelaed that only username and password is once retreived from system variables. But what about proxy host and port and auth preference?
In short; from home the same task works when I start to build jsvn using gradlew.bat but behind a fire wall that is a no go.
