We'd need to know quite a bit more about what "use my squid proxy server 
within my Java program" means.  Obviously (presumably) you mean you're 
performing HTTP transactions, with or without proxy support, but without any 
details about quite how you're doing this, we have no information to go on.

Here's a suggestion:

Perform one of these transactions from your Java program and show us what 
appears in the squid access log.

Then perform the same transaction using a browser, wget, curl or whatever can 
do the same thing, and show us what appears in the squid access log.

Whatever you do, just give us something we can work with so we have some ideas 
about what it is you're doing and what isn't working.

At the very least tell us what HTTP transaction you're trying to pass through 


#define SIX 1+5
#define NINE 8+1

int main() {
    printf("%d\n", SIX * NINE);
