What do you mean by you can't upgrade your Java? As Java (<=1.3) doesn't support SSL out of the box, you will have to upgrade in some way, be it JSSE, Cryptix, or something else.
If you install JSSE, the normal java.net.URL class will work with "https://" URLs. FYI: JDK 1.4 will include JSSE in the core platform.

I am using Java 1.1.X . I can not upgrade. So I am stuck with this version of java. I can't use JSSE because it only works with java 2. I have tried using Cryptix, but I have com across some errors when talking to a certain server. I am looking for non-commerical versin of ssl for java. any idea's
