how can I use an application-specific proxy (I mean, I will not use the system-defined proxy or that hasn't been set) to use for httpclient requests?

first encode in Base64 your proxy usr/pwd. Then set the Proxy-Authorization field of HTTP header:

Blob lblb_auth

lblb_auth = Blob(ls_usr + ":" + ls_pwd, EncodingANSI!)

ls_auth = lnv_CoderObject.base64encode(lblb_auth)

lnv_HttpClient.SetRequestHeader("Proxy-Authorization", "Basic " + ls_auth)

// do something

HttpClient requests don't use a proxy.

Were you talking about the proxy object that we used to generate from WSDL for Soap Web services? If not, I apologize, I thought that's what you were talking about when you said proxy. You don't use that object with the HTTPClient, but see Marco's response above if you were talking about the proxy authorization in the http header.
