JavaWS currently won't automagically detect proxy settings if a proxy
config script is being used by the browser.  Since many companies use autoconfig
scripts, we should support them in JavaWS.

EVALUATION We now check for the presence of a proxy autoconfiguration script, and if one exists, we read it. We then grab the first proxy that the file mentions and attempt to use it. There could be a better implementation for this, but it would involve actually executing the script, which would require a bundled JavaScript interpreter. -stephen.bohne@East 2001-03-29 Re-opened, just found a bug in this. -stephen.bohne@East 2001-03-29 We were indexing a string incorrectly, fixed. -stephen.bohne@East 2001-03-30
