There was a time when the networking tests had dependencies on quite a 
few web servers, proxies, etc. but there was effort to replace these 
tests so there should only be a few dependencies remaining. I briefly 
looked at the tests today and I was surprised to only find one test that 
attempts a lookup of a Sun internal host. The other tests with 
dependencies weren't moved from closed->open. In any case, it should be 
straight-forward to centralize the dependencies into one place.

If by "baked in" you mean a default configuration file for when the 
property or other knob isn't used then it seems reasonable. Are you 
thinking of passing in the individual parameters as properties or have 
one property to locate a properties/config file with the settings?
