Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1692) Apache HttpClient overrides the protocols supplied by JVM and instead defaults it to TLSv1.0
Date Sun, 08 Nov 2015 23:10:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1692?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14995864#comment-14995864

Sebb commented on HTTPCLIENT-1692:

Please can you provide a code sample that shows the problem you are reporting?

Make sure you state what you expected to happen, and what actually happened where this differs.

The shorter and simpler the sample, the easier it will be for the developers to debug the
Please ensure that the sample uses the latest HC release, and does not use any deprecated

> Issue :  We have a SDK provided by our Payment gateway and we use this SDK to invoke
the Payment webservices. This SDK uses Apache HttpCLient /Post methods to make webservice
calls and Payment gateway requires the communication to go through TLS1.2 handshake.  We invoke
these payment services using 2 ways :
> 1. Using IBM Websphere Application server.
> 2. Using IBM Agent Server (Batch job which runs on a JVM process and uses Queue to process
and listen to messages)
> a. For IBM websphere, we were able to make the TLS1.2 protocol work by changing the "Quality
Of Protection"  SSL settings but we cannot make it work on IBM Agent server.
> b. We tried passing the protocols explicitly by giving "https.protocols=TLSv1.2" as system
arguments when starting the server but it seems the Apache HttpsClient is overriding the protocol
and setting it to JVM default protocol which is TLSv1.0. Due to this default protocol, all
our communications with Payment gateway are failing. We are using apache-httpcomponents-httpclient.jar.
> c. We tried using the httpClient4.5.x but even then the same behavior is seen.Another
issue we faced when we use higher versions of httpclient was whenever we try deploying the
Httpclient 4.5.x.jar on websphere, Websphere is throwing Class conflict error as IBM websphere
has a com.ibm.ws.prereq.jaxrs.jar plugin which internally supports only apache 4.1.x. We tried
changing the websphere class loader policy to read the Parent class last but it starts effecting
other functionalities.
> d. We would basically need to know how we can enforce the httpclient to accept the JVM
protocols set in system property "https.protocols=TLSv1.2" instead of overriding the protocol
to TLSv1.0.  
> e. We are using IBM JDK 1.6 SR5 and IBM Websphere 8.5.5
> Secondly we are not using JSSE socketfactory but are using Websphere SSL socket factory
with com.ibm.ws.security.crypto.jar:
> # WebSphere socket factories (in cryptosf.jar)
> ssl.SocketFactory.provider=com.ibm.websphere.ssl.protocol.SSLSocketFactory
> ssl.ServerSocketFactory.provider=com.ibm.websphere.ssl.protocol.SSLServerSocketFactory
> f. Its an Open source SDK provided by Vantiv and it can be used by anyone  at https://github.com/LitleCo/litle-sdk-for-java
