Subject Re: Config alternate ssl socket factory: Getting existing protocol
Date Fri, 07 Nov 2003 01:04:39 GMT
Hi David,

The port value associated with a protocol is the default port for the 
protocol (i.e. 80 for HTTP).  It is possible to override this value 
using the method URI or via the hostConfig.  The reason that protocol 
is null in the example below is that one has not been set.
