Seeing the following error when using the HTTP Proxy with HTTPS protocol:
error "Failed to communicate with proxy: null/-1"
This happens in a scenario where a business service uses an endpoint URL for this service with https:// e.g. https://hostname. This business service is using a Proxy Server. ALSB/OSB is not sending user auth info to the Proxy Server which leads to a
weblogic.net.http.HttpUnauthorizedException: Proxy or Server Authentication Required
After this exception, ALSB/OSB is trying to invoke end point URL itself and bypassing the proxy server.
