Subject untrusted SSL certs
Date Fri, 15 Mar 2002 23:08:29 GMT

Attached is a patch that adds a hook for creating a different 
"SocketFactory" for SSL. It
is very hacky, but solves a very common problem - connecting with SSL 
with servers
without a signed certificate. Many people have a lot of pain because of 
that, so
it would be great if you could commit this.

The "FakeTrustSocketFactory" is a special factory that uses the hook to plug
a trusting SSL factory.

If someone more familiar with the axis config can make the hook configurable
per service - it would be great. Right now it uses a global system 

Please let me know if there's any problem with the patch or anything I can
