Subject RE: [httpclient] with ssl

thanks this helped clarify a lot, i just need to get a new certificate to be sure it is working
as the keytool reported mine was not X509. 

clearly i don't know anything about these things, can someone point me at any good resources,
jeff you mentioned generating certs with openssl? (the oreilly link was great for the java
side)

thanks, tim

You need to create a 'truststore' and import the certificate of the
server you're hitting.

Attached is a little note I wrote for internal reference, dealing with
the case where the HTTPS client is a servlet (JSP). The links at the end
are probably the most useful in your case.

HTH,
