Please see the code snippet below and give me your suggestion

<web-resource-name>ServListenerTest</web-resource-name>
<url-pattern>/ServListenerTest.html</url-pattern>
<http-method>GET</http-method>
<http-method>POST</http-method>
</web-resource-collection>

<auth-constraint>
<role-name>admin</role-name>
</auth-constraint>

<user-data-constraint>

You need an SSL certificate. The knowledge of how to get one and set it up isn't required for the exam.

If you're really eager to do the extra work and figure this out, VeriSign offers a Trial for on their Secure Site certificate. You'll probably also need to Google for tutorials on how to set this up with Tomcat.

If you're trying to study for the exam though, this could become a very frustrating distraction.

Thanks- your suggestion was helpful and I agree this could cause distraction while preparing for exam.

Leaving aside the necessity of doing this for the exam, setting up SSL for Tomcat is pretty easy, and is documented well. You don't need a certificate from Verisign for your experiments; you can create one yourself (and that page tells you how).

As an aside, you may have missed that we have a policy on screen names here at JavaRanch. Basically, it must consist of a first name, a space, and a last name, and not be obviously fictitious. Since yours does not conform with it, please take a moment to change it, which you can do right here.
