Description
In Java Web Start on Unix, the current automatic proxy script support is implemented by manually parsing the script to find out the first proxy settings specified in the script. This scheme is ad-hoc and problematic. 

In Mustang, it will have a JavaScript engine for scripting support in the Java platform. We should investigate and see if we could make use of the JS engine to provide better automatic proxy script support in Java Web Start on Unix.

EVALUATION

This can be fixed relatively easily using javax.script.
