(More) Proxy Trouble

I new to Android and Java, but I am a roperdeveloper.

I trying to get the emulator to work behind the company proxy, and
thought I had it cracked but I haven.  Ie set up the APN using the
proxy name, port, username and password and now the Browser
application is happy it will pull pages back and display them.  But
following the HelloGoogleMaps and HelloWebView  tutorials and they
don work.  I tried this at on the other side of the proxy and it
works fine for both (so my Google key is OK).

So what I know is...
-http-proxy apparently doesn work
-verbose-proxy should be ebug-proxy but it doesn tell me much
I have <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
in my manifest file.
The SQL INSERT may work but I find it a little offensive that I have
to do it so am still looking for a cleaner official way of resolving

I concluding that this must be a proxy issue as the code works fine
on the other side of the proxy, but I struggling to see how to set
the proxy up correctly for applications.  I thought setting the APN
would be enough but it appears not to be.

Do I need to tell the app to use the APN or something?  How?  As I say
I new to Java and Android so I don know if this is a Java thing or
an Android thing.

Can anyone help?

 I confirm that -http-proxy doesn't work on Windows (it does on Linux and OS
X though). A fix will be available with the next tools release.
Sorry about that.

I've mentioned these in passing and in my sig, but it's probably high 
time for a more formal set of announcements...

First, _The Busy Coder's Guide to Android Development_ (version 0.9) is 
now officially available. This is a complete book and is available today 
in PDF and Kindle formats. Version 1.0 will be released when the print 
edition hits the shelves in a month or two, and there will be frequent 
updates as Android evolves. The description, table of contents, source 
code, and errata are all at:


Second, Big Nerd Ranch is running a week-long Android training session 
in Atlanta, September 15-19. This will cover everything in the book, 
plus perhaps some late-breaking updates if a new Android SDK shows up a 
week or two before the class. Details can be found at:
