Subject RE: SSL/TLS session

Hello Nicolas, you can share the context. However, be sure to use the multithreaded connection
manager. Also, we had sever problems with Sun's JCE with JVM 1.3.1 + http client 2.0.2 (and
also earlier versions. For some reason, the contents of the SSL Context were getting messed
up after some 1000 or so requests.

Ultimately, the cause was determined to be the other apps running on the JVM also using the
JCE for their own SSL connection. I don't know fuiller details, we were never able to work
them out.

Subject: SSL/TLS session

Hi,

I'm writing a reverse proxy, which handles requests from multiple clients.
The proxy forwards all the request to a server using HTTPS protocol, using
httpclient 2.0.2 (+ IBM or Sun JSSE).
I'm using EasySSLProtocolSocketFactory, and my proxy runs on a JRE 1.3.1.

I have a question concerning SSL/TLS sessions (ie HTTPS persistent connections)
: how can I do to prevent the full handshake mecanism for each connection my
proxy opens to the server ? Apparently, SSL/TLS session is attached to an
instance of SSLContext, so sharing the same instance of SSLContext seems to
work. I am right ?

Thanks in advance.

Nicolas
