In our Project, we are using JBoss 2.2.1 and Tomcat 3.2.1. From this environment we have to access the https port of another Web Server.(iPlanet). We have successfully configured https in iPlanet and is able to access the same from an ordinary Java class. But when the same code snippet is moved to a
bean/servlet in Tomcat& JBoss environment it is failing to
recognise the https protocol. JSSE jar files are in the JBoss classpath.(lib\ext directory).
The error messages we are getting are ..
when the JSSE jars are in JBoss lib\ext
java.net.MalformedURLException: unknown protocol:
https
when the JSSE jars are in <jre> lib\ext
java.net.SocketException: SSL implementation not
available

It will be a great help if you can help us in solving this problem. Any info/ help will be appreciated.

The code snippet related to SSL
----------------------------------------------------
***************

System.setProperty("java.protocol.handler.pkgs","com.sun.net.ssl.internal.www.protocol");
System.setProperty("javax.net.ssl.trustStore",
"samplecacerts");
Security.addProvider(new
com.sun.net.ssl.internal.ssl.Provider());
***********
theUrl = new URL("https://param:9003/");
HttpsURLConnection con = null;
con = (HttpsURLConnection)theUrl.openConnection();
con.setAllowUserInteraction(true);
con.setUseCaches(false);
con.setRequestProperty("Un_Name","Un_Value");
----------------------------------------------------------------

It looks like the protocol isn't "registered" with the server. (I don't what what is required to "register" it.) I would also guess that the required libraries (jars) aren't included with your new servers. Check the classpath to be sure.

Hi Mark,
What is puzzling is that we are able to do it from an ordinary class. That is with the jsse jar files in the jre/lib/ext folder. JBoss fails to recognise this -even if we explicitly add this to the JBoss classpath. (java.net.SocketException: SSL implementation not available )
If we move it from jre/lib/ext and put the jars in JBoss/lib/ext ( no need for any classpath entry for this), the error changes to "java.net.MalformedURLException: unknown protocol:https". Ur inference that the problem lies in registering appears to be right. But we are unable to find a reason 'why ?' and how to fix this..
I posted this here in the hope that there will be someone out there who has worked with JBoss and has encountered similar issues and has found the solution...I am sorry if there is a different thread for such implemetation related issues..

I'm transferring this to our new iPlanet forum...
