JBoss Portal and Proxy Server

"News" and "Weather" pages didn't work in my JBoss Portal.
My computer located in the the local network area and I use Internet via HTTP proxy server.

Today I found a solution how to configure my JBoss Portal in order to connect it with Internet.

The simplest way is to add specific properties to the JAVA_OPTS variable.

I added one string at the beginning of run.bat file:

set JAVA_OPTS=-Dhttp.proxyHost=<Proxy Host> -Dhttp.proxyPort=<Proxy Port>

In Linux it should be:

JAVA_OPTS="-Dhttp.proxyHost=<Proxy Host> -Dhttp.proxyPort=<Proxy Port>"

You should replace values "Proxy Host" and "Proxy Port" with actual data for your network.

Now all portlets are working and I'm happy.
