WebTest reads the proxy settings configured with setproxy but the nonproxyhosts are not considered
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: WT-246
         URL: http://webtest-community.canoo.com/jira/browse/WT-246
     Project: WebTest
        Type: Bug

    Versions: 2.0, 1.6    
    Reporter: John Lockhart


When using the Ant command:
<setproxy proxyhost="127.0.0.1" proxyport="5865" nonproxyhosts="aklia781"/> 
in a WebTest the nonproxyhosts bit doesn't seem to work.

Marc says "I think that you've hit a current limitation of WebTest. WebTest just reads the proxy settings configured with setproxy but doesn't rely on this mechanism. As far as I remember, the nonproxyhosts are not considered currently (perhaps htmlunit couldn't handle it at the time we've introduced this functionality in  WebTest)."

and recommended as a workaround the groovy step:
<groovy description="finer proxy configuration">
step.context.webClient.addHostsToProxyBypass("aklia781")
</groovy>

I tried this workaround and it resolves the issue, but looks like a fix to WebTest is required.
