Is that possible create a http tunnel to remote http tunnel server via a middle http proxy?

Here is my situation :
My Company only allow http protocol and they created a http proxy server. So when we want to access internet we have to set the http proxy settings for the browser or application.

Now I want to access outside without restrictions of http protocol and also not limited to 80 port. As they blocked the ssh, so the SSH reverse binding is not possible. So is that possible to create a http tunnel via the http proxy of my company and aim to my own server outside?

I have a requirement where the tomcat load has to be managed by tuning the following parameters.

--> Limit the number of user requests at Apache level that are routed to Tomcat server.
--> Track the number of processed requests and the requests that are queued at Apache level.

Any suggestions?

Apache/Tomcat (by default) does not allow symbolic linking (nice as it can cross mounted file systems) except in the top apache/lib directory. I use hard links in the Application/WEB-INF/lib directories to reduce copying and help me manage things.

HOWEVER, some applications have special needs - e.g. pictures. You don't want to always distribute these with the release of the application (Application.war file), so symbolic links are the way to go (except for MS land, sorry). The nice solution to this is:

which must contain at least the two below lines:

However this allows ALL symbolic linking in the Application directory. I agree with the developers that this is dangerous.

Is there some way to allow linking in just ONE sub-directory of the Application?
- e.g. .../webapps/Application/images

This would allow all I need to have local images for the application without endangering other things using a symbolic link.

$scope.addTodo = function() {     
    var url = '';
    var config1 = {headers:{
    'Access-Control-Allow-Methods': ['OPTIONS', 'GET', 'POST'],
    'Access-Control-Allow-Headers':'Origin, X-Requested-With, Content-Type, Accept',

   alert("url" + url);
   //Enable cross domain calls
   $http.defaults.useXDomain = true;
   // alert("$http.defaults.useXDomain");
   //Remove the header used to identify ajax call  that would prevent CORS from working
   delete $http.defaults.headers.common['X-Requested-With'];
    //   alert("$http.defaults.headers.common");
    //  alert("$http.config1"+config1);
    //  alert("url" + url);

    $http.get(url, config1).success(function (data, status, headers, config) {
  alert("inside success");
   alert("inside else");
error(function (data, status, headers, config) {
alert("Error, please report to admin. Error code is " + status);
//alert("data, please report to admin. Error code is " + data);

We have a set up like Apahce (80,443) redirects the request to Tomcat (8080) using mod_jk.

The new requirement is to route the request from the same apache to another tomcat (8090). Hence I made the different config file for apache with different ports (86,4444) and different worker for mod_jk which routes the request to tomcat.

Now the issue is when I hit the url http://:86 and after providing the credentials, it is redirecting to https://:86 and throwing the below error.

Error in browser:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to x.x.x.x:86. SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length. (Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)

Error in logs:

Could you please suggest where it might went wrong and the way forward..
