Subject Re: Httpclient under weblogic 7.0
Date Wed, 28 May 2003 02:34:14 GMT
Hi Om,

I recently had to use HttpClient to make some SSL connections from with in
a session bean deployed in WebLogic 7.0. I had a problem where the SSL
handshake never goes through. I am using JSSE for SSL though. I did the
following steps to get it working:

1) moved the JDK to 1.4.1
2) added jsse.jar, httpclient.jar, jnet.jar and jcert.jar to the
POST_CLASSPATH in startWebLogic.cmd (so that they will be tacked on to
2) added the certificate of the host i am connecting to (xxx.cer) cacerts
in the JDK and also the cacerts under \bea\weblogic700\server\lib\.
    2.1) the way to do this is "keytool -import -keystore "path to
cacerts" -file "path to xxx.cer"
    2.2) the default password for the keystore is "changeit" :-)
3) add the following argument to the weblogic.Server command:
-Dweblogic.security.SSL.trustedCAKeyStore=c"path to cacerts"

Hope this helps.
