Problem Description

In an explicit deployment, a java application using JRE 1.4 or 1.5 might fail when attempting to issue an HTTP CONNECT method to the ProxySG.

The ProxySG returns the error "HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request"

This issue occurs due to an error with JRE, where a "Content-Length" request is issued when it shouldn't be.


Content-Type: Text/xml; charset="utf-8"
Content-length: 145120
User-Agent: Java/1.4.2_06
Accept: text/html, image/gif, image/jpeg, *; q=.2, */*; q=.2
