Subject Re: Httpclient under weblogic 7.0
Date Wed, 28 May 2003 04:24:09 GMT
I am connecting to a well known site (www.dell.com!!!) and as seen from the
trace, if I use the weblogic classes, I can make the https connection
without any problem, but not when using the httpclient classes. So unless
these two implementations are using different cacerts files (weblogic uses
the one under weblogic700/server/lib directory), the behaviour is hard to
explain....maybe the httpclient uses cacerts file from jre/lib/security
directory....I will check it out.
