Sample code for using proxies in Java code:


import java.util.Scanner;


class ProxyTest {
  public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
    InetSocketAddress proxyAddress = new InetSocketAddress("", 8800); // Set proxy IP/port.
    Proxy proxy = new Proxy(Proxy.Type.HTTP, proxyAddress);

    URL url = new URL("");
    URLConnection urlConnection = url.openConnection(proxy);
    Scanner scanner = new Scanner(urlConnection.getInputStream());
