You weren't confused.  (sounds like you are now though. :-)  We are 
talking about how to get the WSDL document.     The URL to the WSDL that 
is passed in is just "toString()" and that string is passed around 
through much of the code.   The actual URL object is not used at all. 
Thus, setting stream handlers or whatever on that URL object would be 

That string goes through a bunch of code to figure out how to create the 
InputStream for it.   One is all the URI resolver code for files, 
classpath,etc...   The next is the JAXWS catalog stuff.   Finally, it 
checks the Bus's ResourceManager.   At this point, nothing in that path 
would allow for a "secure" connection to the wsdl.
