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.

Written to test GWT apps such as samples/JSON. By default the JSON sample java reads JSON data from a local file (search-results.js) instead of actually hitting the 3rd party yahoo site. This server can serve the JSON sample and redirect requests to 3rd party sites such as http://api.search.yahoo.com/.
