Java proxy gatewaying

Probably not just a Squid issue, but here goes.

Tried to try out some new java-base Chat site:


The java involves network calls, and even though my Netscape browser is
configured to work via a proxy server (squid of course!), Netscape goes
off and tries to connect to the java server directly - where it gets
jumped on by our firewall.

Are they just running ahead of standards as usual, or is there some
java-spec that defines how such things should be gatewayed, and (here's
the squid bit) would squid need to support it? (obviously Netscape would
need to first).
