Subject Re: [classlib] choose one [x-net] || [security] for HARMONY-536 (JSSE provider)
Date Wed, 19 Jul 2006 05:21:16 GMT
A long ago we agreed that providers go into a separate module. But
now I think it's might be not very reasonable.

Sun keeps certificates in its own proprietary format (JKS), while we have
BKS from Bouncy Castle, so files will have to be converted. I can do this
next week

Thanks,
Mikhail
