Just a quick update on this effort. Michael has changed the SOCKS and
HTTP proxy SocketImpl implementations to use delegation rather than
sub-classing so they can delegate to the new NIO based SocketImpl or the
old PlainSocketImpl. We've added a system property so you can run with
-Djdk.net.usePlainSocketImpl or -Djdk.net.usePlainSocketImpl=true to use
the old implementation. Existing tests are passing with both the old and
new implementations so I think this effort is starting to look good. I
expect we will be at the point soon where we could use some help from
those with libraries or applications that use the old
Socket/ServerSocket APIs extensively.
