Subject Re: ant http task, fully featured, apache 2.0 licnesed released

I forgot to mention the biggest one for me, is that I set it up to
allow you to configure a JKS keystore in the task to use when
connecting over HTTPS for TLS/SSL certificate validation...

So you don't have to use the JVM options to set a JVM-wide trust store :)
