Hi...I am having some difficulty making a secure connection to send/receive streams. In order to connect to non-secure sites, I use the following code:
// Initialize URL variables
URL url = null;
HttpURLConnection urlConnection = null;

// Get handle to URL and its connection
url = new URL("http://www.whatever.com");
urlConnection = (HttpURLConnection)url.openConnection();

// Open input/output stream
[Add code to open stream(s) here]
// Clean up
[Add code to close stream(s) here]
This code works fine. When I change the URL to a "HTTPS" URL, the code throws a malformed URL exception. I understand that this is because the HTTPS protocol is not understood and JSSE must be used. So, I installed JSSE in the appropriate directory, added the JAR files to my class path, and changed the above code to this:
// Initialize URL variables
URL url = null;
HttpsURLConnection urlConnection = null;
// Add provider
System.setProperty("java.protocol.handler.pkgs", "com.sun.net.ssl.internal.www.protocol");
Security.addProvider(new com.sun.net.ssl.internal.ssl.Provider());

// Get handle to URL and its connection
url = new URL("https://www.whatever.com");
urlConnection = (HttpsURLConnection)url.openConnection();

// Open input/output stream
[Add code to open stream(s) here]
// Clean up
[Add code to close stream(s) here]
Unfortunately, the code blows up when I try to open an input or output stream. I get the following in the log:

I have tried both static and dynamic registration, and both at the same time! For static registration, I do the following:
1. Copied the 3 JSSE JAR files to $JREHOME/lib/ext
2. Modified the java.security file to add the additional security provider
For dymaic registration, I do the following:
1. Added the 3 JAR files to my classpath
2. Added a line (shown in code above) to dynamically add the provider
I feel like I have done everything but it still does not work! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
