We are looking for the ProxyHandler implementation of HTTP request handler.
This will allow us to configure the Tomcat Http server as proxy server and build
the application for creating the Http Tunnel

This HTTP Tunnel can be used to take over a HTTP connection in order to tunnel
another protocol over it

Are you asking for a ProxyHandler to be created?
Comment 2 Ratna 2005-10-13 07:41:29 UTC
We are looking for the HTTP CONNECT handler in the Tomcat HTTP/1.1 server

We are looking for the following RFC implementation with the tomcat server

Jetty Server supports the proxyHandler

This enhancement request has been open for a number of years without any sign of progress.

Requests for this feature do crop up occasionally on the users list but clearly no-one has felt the urge to scratch this particular itch. I am therefore closing this as WONTFIX.

If you would like to see this feature implemented and have a patch or start of a patch then please feel free to re-open this issue and attach your proposed patch.
