Right now Java programs run with torsocks have their network calls dropped, or sometimes crash. Torsocks should force Java programs to use Tor. This could be done by setting the proxy settings in the JVM with -DsockProxyHost= -DsocksProxyPort=8080. To ensure proxy obedience for DNS calls, torsocks might implement a DNS provider that uses SOCKS for resolution, add that to the classpath, and use it to override the DNS provider the JVM uses at runtime.
