Last year, I posted about the v2.0 of the Download Proxy.
At the time, the main event was the change of the technological stack and a restricted set of transformations.
Today, I happily publish a version 2.1.
Here are the main changes.
If you’ve been using Spring for a while, or copy-pasting some web tutorials or examples, you’ve probably put some
@Autowired annotations on private fields.
This does work, but it’s not the best way to do it.
A few years back, I had problems downloading files I needed in order to work.
It’s not uncommon for developers to have higher access rights on their machine, but this almost never applies to the firewall.
So, you may have the right to install all software you need and yet still be unable to download it without a two-day-long exchange with a security service located in another city.
And that’s when I came up with the Download Proxy.
