Apache HttpClient 4.1 - Proxy Authentication

I've been trying to configure the user and password for proxy authentication from the configured properties while using Apaches HttpComponent's httpclient, but with no success. All examples I have found refer to methods and classes that are no longer available, such as


So, can anyone give me an example of how to configure the proxy credentials?

For Basic-Auth it looks like this:

DefaultHttpClient httpclient = new DefaultHttpClient();
    new AuthScope("PROXY HOST", 8080),
    new UsernamePasswordCredentials("username", "password"));

HttpHost targetHost = new HttpHost("TARGET HOST", 443, "https");
HttpHost proxy = new HttpHost("PROXY HOST", 8080);

httpclient.getParams().setParameter(ConnRoutePNames.DEFAULT_PROXY, proxy);

AFAIK NTLM is not supported out of the box. But you might be able to manage that using NTCredentials and maybe overloading DefaultProxyAuthenticationHandler.
