Error in retrieve/generate WSDL in https/ssl

Hi to all!

I’m developing a MIDP application (with Netbeans 6.5) that should be use https web services (I’m using Tomcat 6). The MIDP application and the web server are in two different computers. The MIDP application works well if I use the http connection (I can retrieve the wsdl and generate stubs automatically from the “Java ME Web Service Client Information” form). To automatically retrieve the wsdl configuration I use the following address and all works well.

When I try to retrieve wsdl from https I use but the Netbeans utility shows me the following error: “Download file, I/O exception: HTTPS hostname wrong: should be <> (Check the proxy settings)."

I do not use a proxy.
I try to use both 8443 and 443 port in the server.xml tomcat file in order to configure tomcat to use correctly the https connections.
In Explorer everything works well: I can see the services list both in http and https. Note that in the https connection I must confirm the certificate exception (generated with keytool). Shall I install the certificate on the client? If so, how can I do it?

Any suggestion will be appreciate.

Thanks in advance.


P.S.: this is my actual Tomcat server.xml file:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>

Download the WSDL and ALL the files (WSDL,XSD) referenced by the WSDL (and referenced by its dependecies) with the browser and store them locally. Then run the code generation against the local copies (usually this requires that you supply all of the files at the same time in order to avoid it going out on the network).
