Building Spring 3.0 M2 from behind a proxy

It took me a while to find out where to put the proxy settings for allowing the ant/ivy build scripts to fetch the dependencies.


$> vi /spring-framework-3.0.0.CI-167/projects/spring-build/lib/ivy/jets3t.properties


then


#...
httpclient.proxy-autodetect=false
httpclient.proxy-host=<your-proxy-host>
httpclient.proxy-port=<your-proxy-port>
#...


This should proxy out any request (to s3). Note that proxy-autodetect is by default true.

You can now build the framework via ant:

/spring-framework-3.0.0.CI-167/projects/build-spring-framework$ ant
