Subject Re: Intermittent SSL handshake failure issue.
Date Tue, 23 May 2006 14:21:07 GMT
Thanks Oleg for the reply.
  I will try setting connect timeout along with read timeout and see if that fixes the problem.
  Just want to clarify this. Currently we are on jdk1.3.1 (WAS5.0.2.10) and we are using 
  HttpClient 3.0 (which is supposed on jdk1.4.x). Just wondering whether there will be any
impact on the app for this combination.
  Also I will try to purse with IBM regarding this SSL handshake failure issue.
  Do you have any other suggestions to over come this issue. Increasing the read timeout (5
secs to 10secs) will be any help ?

The socket read timeout does not apply here. Make sure the connect
timeout is set. 

As to the SSL handshake failure, it appears to be specific to the IBM
implementation of JSSE. You should probably seek assistance through
official IBM support channels, unless someone on this list happens to
have in-depth knowledge of the IBMJSSE implementation.
