Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-789) Support for passing an SSLContext to the SSLSocketFactory of HttpClient
Date Thu, 10 Jan 2013 11:24:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-789?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13549548#comment-13549548

Alexey Serba commented on HTTPCLIENT-789:

If one day HttpClient was made to require Java 6, it could be possible to use the default
SSLContext when the constructor argument is null:
{code}
        if (sslContext == null) {
            this.sslContext = SSLContext.getDefault();
        } else {
            this.sslcontext = sslContext;
        }
{code}

What about using reflection and using default SSL context on java 6? It would make configuring
SSL for http client 4.x much easier. Thoughts?

> Would it be possible to use an existing instance of SSLContext to initialise an SSLSocketFactory?
This would allow using SSLContexts configured with more options, such as CRLs.
