Subject [jira] Created: (HTTPCLIENT-601) SecureProtocolFactoryWrapper class for using the socket factory created by Java Web Start
Date Mon, 18 Sep 2006 16:22:22 GMT
SecureProtocolFactoryWrapper class for using the socket factory created by Java Web Start
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-601
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-601
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Contrib
    Affects Versions: 3.0.1
         Environment: Java 5.0, Windows XP
            Reporter: Mark Claassen


As smartcards and SSL are becoming more and more prevelant, Java Web Start has started to
become better equiped to handle these situations.  When running an app within webstart, it
can access the browser's keystore, which (at least in our case) accessed the users smartcard
to make the SSL connection.

I wanted to start using HttpClient, but needed a way to do so while still mainaining access
to the browser's keystore.

My initial tests show that getting the default socket factory from the java.net.HttpURLConnection
and wrapping it in a class that implements org.apache.commons.httpclient.protocol.SecureProtocolSocketFactory
is sufficient.
