    Thanks for the hint, I am going to add this behaviour!

> In deployments other than production (e.g. dev, qa, integration testing, etc.) it is
often useful to deploy self-signed certificates instead of certificates signed by a trusted
CA for cost and simplicity reasons.
> By default, the http client does not validate a self signed certificate because it is
not signed by a trusted CA root. 
> One way to have the http client to validate the self signed certificate is to add the
self-signed certificate (or the detached CA root that signed it) in the java trustore.
> This operation is a configuration only change (no need to change code) however it typically
requires accessing the FS and the scope of trust can't be easily modified at runtime.
> Another way to have the http client to validate the self signed certificate is to use
the TrustSelfSignedStrategy [0] strategy when building the http client.
> This requires modifying the code.
> In order to use the second approach without modifying code, it would be interesting to
allow configuring a set of URIs for which the relaxed SSL mode should be used.
> The configuration could be implemented similarly to the implementation of the central
prox configuration (OSGI) in HTTPCLIENT-1238. In addition to allowing sel-signed certificates,
the configuration could as well allow to skip FQDN check using the NoopHostnameVerifier [1].
> Of course, this feature *must not* be deployed in production environment as it is totally
insecure.
