Hi,

We use Jboss and Apache. Right now we use http protocol.
If we want to move to https what changes are needed? Is it configurable on the server or
does it require any code related changes in our application.

Thanks

In the simplest setup you just have to configure the server.

Create keystore to hold the self signed certificate used by the server to perform SSL connections.
%JAVA_HOME%\bin\keytool -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA -keystore c:\jboss\server\default\conf\server.keystore

Add the following connector to c:\jboss\server\default\deploy\jboss-web.deployer\server.xml in addition to the existing one.

<Connector port="8443" protocol="HTTP/1.1" SSLEnabled="true"
maxThreads="150" scheme="https" secure="true"
clientAuth="false"
strategy="ms"
address="${jboss.bind.address}"
keystoreFile="${jboss.server.home.dir}/conf/server.keystore"
keystorePass="keystorepass"
sslProtocol="TLS"/>

'keystorepass' must be replaced with the password asked by keytool.

Restart jboss.

You should now be ready to access your web app from https://your_app in addtion to http://your_app.
