Subject RE: Can SOAP be used for building HTTPS clients ????
Date Thu, 17 Jan 2002 13:12:34 GMT
hi nilesh,
 
yes, you can use apache soap to build https clients. The following steps will help you getting
it running (without client certificates):
 
- Add the Java Secure Socket Extension (JSSE) libraries (jsse.jar, jcert.jar, jnet.jar) to
the classpath or to the folder jre\lib\ext.
- Allow "https" to be used in java.net.URL objects by setting the system property "java.protocol.handler.pkgs"
to "com.sun.net.ssl.internal.www.protocol"
- Add the security provider "com.sun.net.ssl.internal.ssl.Provider" either statically in the
jre\lib\security\java.security file or dynamically by using 
Security.addProvider(new com.sun.net.ssl.internal.ssl.Provider())
- Make sure the server certificates have a compatible format (Java Keystore is x.509 compatible,
but not really pkcs12)
- make sure the jre\lib\security\cacerts file accepts the server certificate.

Subject: Can SOAP be used for building HTTPS clients ????


Hi,
 
I am trying to write a HTTPS client, which would talk to a secure site.  Wanted to know if
I can use SOAP for building such a client ????.  Basically I was looking for some API's which
would deal with complexities of SSL handshaking, authentication.
 
Any Inputs will be greatly appreciated.
 
thanx & reg
nilesh
