Something like this works:

public class HttpPost {
    public static class RelaxedX509TrustManager implements X509TrustManager
        public[] getAcceptedIssuers() {
            return null;
        // Supposed to throw a CertificateException if the cert is not
        // This construct accepts anything.
        public void checkClientTrusted([]
chain, String authType) {}
        public void checkServerTrusted([]
chain, String authType) {}

    public static InputStream post(String urlStr,Hashtable
headers,InputStream reqStream)
    throws IOException {
        URL url = new URL(urlStr);
        HttpURLConnection con = (HttpURLConnection)url.openConnection();
        if (con instanceof HttpsURLConnection) {
            HttpsURLConnection conHttps = (HttpsURLConnection)con;
            // accept any cert
            KeyManager[] km = null;
            TrustManager[] tm = {new RelaxedX509TrustManager()};
            try {
                SSLContext sslContext = SSLContext.getInstance("SSL");
                sslContext.init(null, tm, new;
                SSLSocketFactory sslSF = sslContext.getSocketFactory();
            } catch(NoSuchAlgorithmException e) {
                throw new IOException("HttpPost.postXML(): unable to
complete request, NoSuchAlgorithmException=" + e.getMessage());
            } catch(KeyManagementException e) {
                throw new IOException("HttpPost.postXML(): unable to
complete request, KeyManagementException=" + e.getMessage());
            // be relaxed about hostnames
            conHttps.setHostnameVerifier(new HostnameVerifier() {
                public boolean verify(String hostname,SSLSession session) {
                    return true;

My web services has a swing gui and use a ssl connection.
I don't want mutual authentication (only server has certification), how
implement in java on the client side? 
simply put https, I don't think so....
