Proxy settings not effective for Java applet

My Fedora 10 workstation requires a proxy server to access the internet. Everything works fine except a particular website that uses a java application. It tries to go directly to it's server/site rather than going through the network's proxy.

I've set set up these environment variables to try and make the application use the proxy (to no avail):
declare -x JAVA_OPTS="-Dhttp.proxyHost= -Dhttp.proxyPort=8080"
declare -x http_proxy=""

Also, the firefox network settings are, of course, configured to use the proxy.

What other steps can I do the try and get this web application to work?

What other information can I provide to help diagnose this problem?

Thanks in advance!
