Subject [jira] Commented: (MUSE-223) Add capability to specify a SSLSocketFactory for HTTPS based connections in SimpleSoapClient.
Date Wed, 18 Apr 2007 12:27:15 GMT


Oliver Waeldrich commented on MUSE-223:

Another problem is, that there are two implementations of HttpsUrlConnection, one in
and one in (deprecated). To be backward compatible we still need to support
the deprecated implementation. 

Therefore, I think it would be quite useful not to pass the SSLSocketFactory to MUSE, but
allow a client implementation to register a handler with the soap client, which is called
e.g. directly after url.openConnection(); The handler would have only one method (e.g. public
void handle(HttpURLConnection); ) where an implementation could manipulate the connection
object as it prefers. 

This would potentially also be a feasible solution for j2ME environments.

> In order to use certificate based client authentication with MUSE we would like to specify
> SSLSocketFactory to be used when communicating with a MUSE server. Even though it is
> possible to specify a default SSLSocketFactory (see HttpsURLConnection.setDefaultSSLSocketFactory())
> this is not feasible for environments, where e.g. a client needs to communicate with
> server instances using different credentials. 
> Therefore I would suggest an extension to the SimpleSoapClient to specify a SSLSocketFactory
 for https
> connections and to extend the client's send-functionality as indicated by the code below.
>     HttpURLConnection connection = (HttpURLConnection)url.openConnection();
>     if (connection instanceof HttpsURLConnection)
>         if (mySSLSocketFactoryInstance =! null) {
>             ((HttpsURLConnection)connection).setSSLSocketFactory(mySSLSocketFactoryInstance);
