Hi,

I could access the https urls using HttpClient API but the code is failing when the url prompts for certificate pop-up .

I am using the below code to get the content of the https url page.



This is working for some urls , but for some urls , it is not. Could someone please guide how to handle ssl certificates while accessing https urls.

Example url that is failing : https://passport.gov.in/

I think you are using Apache HTTP Client API. I've never used that library myself, but I found a few pages that might help

Authentication Guide
SSL Guide

Aren't you supposed to authenticate your request...

The connection fails because the certificate is not trusted. You can get around that by importing the certificate to the keystore that the client uses. You can follow a discussion on that topic here -> http://www.coderanch.com/t/463562/BEA-Weblogic/Weblogic-SSL-certificate

I was once connecting to a HTTPS web service and the certificate was a test certificate. So I used this utility to solve my problem...
