Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-1011) HTTPS Connectors fail on IBM JDK
Date Sat, 17 Sep 2005 03:17:54 GMT
    [ ] 

Jeremy Boynes commented on GERONIMO-1011:

Fixed in a slightly different way
Sending        modules/assembly/src/plan/j2ee-jetty-plan.xml
Sending        modules/assembly/src/plan/j2ee-tomcat-plan.xml
Sending        modules/jetty/src/java/org/apache/geronimo/jetty/connector/
Sending        modules/tomcat/src/java/org/apache/geronimo/tomcat/
Transmitting file data ....
Committed revision 289691.

This change allows the user to specify a value of "Default" for the algorithm which causes
the connector to obtain the platform default from the KeyManagerFactory. This is standard
Java and should work on any JVM.

This does not affect the client-side behaviour.

>          URL:
>      Project: Geronimo
>         Type: Bug
>   Components: JVM-compatibility
>     Versions: 1.0-M5
>  Environment: WinXP or Win2003 Server w/ IBM 1.4.2 JDK
>     Reporter: Donald Woods
>  Attachments: IBMJUnit.patch, IBMSSL.patch
> HTTPS connectors for Jetty and Tomcat fail to load when starting the server using the
IBM 1.4.2 JDK.
> This worked with M4, but was broken sometime in the last several weeks by changes in
> The IBM JDK supplies its own HTTPS handler -, which must
be manually loaded in addition to the default
> Also, the IBM JDK provides a different implementation of the X059 algorithm, which is
IbmX509 instead of SunX509.
> The required code changes to recognize that an IBM JDK is being used and initialize the
algorithm and protocol handler correctly, are confined to the Jetty and Tomcat HttpsConnector
classes and the GeronimoURLFactory.
> The resolution of this bug will only allow a Geronimo server built with the Sun JDK to
run on an IBM JDK - it does not resolve the other known build and Orb problems with using
non-Sun JVMs.
