Subject EasySSLProtocolSocketFactory and IBM JRE 1.4.1
Date Wed, 01 Oct 2003 16:16:17 GMT
Hi All,

Hope all is going well!

I've just noticed that the EasySSLProtocolSocketFactory class in
httpclient contrib imports some specific classes from the Sun JSSE
implementation, which fails when using the IBM 1.4.1 JRE due to package
name conflicts.

eg. Sun JSSE has com.sun.net.ssl.SSLContext where IBM JSSE has

Is there anyway to get this code to work without importing the classes
themselves, perhaps rather with interfaces, etc? I gave it a go but
didn't have any luck - but then again I'm not a JSSE guru so I was only
playing in reality - any thoughts there at all?

If not, I guess the alternative is to detect the JSSE implementation at
runtime and use reflection and proxy classes to return the right one? 

Any other suggestions that fix up the problem? Any info much
