What is a HTTP proxy?

A HTTP proxy acts as an intermediary between a HTTP client (i.e. browser) and HTTP server. It receives all requests from the browser, and relays them (possibly modified) to the server. Likewise, it receives all responses from the server, and relays them (possibly modified) to the client. HTTP Proxies can be used for a wide variety of tasks, including filtering, logging, caching, etc, etc, etc.

Primary features "Scone is a Java Framework published under the GNU GPL, which was designed to allow the quick development and evaluation of new Web enhancements for research and educational purposes. Scone is focussed on tools which help to improve the navigation and orientation on the Web."

Scone is a multi-component system, one of which is a programmable proxy server, described on the web site as follows.

"Programmable Proxy: Interfaces for the access and manipulation of documents. The proxy is based on IBM’s WBI (Web Based Intermediary), which meanwhile has adopted the object- and tokenstream concept we introduced for Scone in a scientific exchange cooperation. This simplifies and speeds up the processing of data. WBI offers a performant proxy platform with many debugging features, which can be freely used in research environments."
