Subject Providing feedback when an SSL certificate is not recognized (due to missing entry in keystore)
Date Sun, 29 Dec 2013 13:48:01 GMT

I've dealt with an issue where an application being migrated to HTTP client
has (with the original HttpURLConnection class) thrown this exception:

sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed:
sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find
valid certification path to requested target
This was due to a missing entry in the keystore, easy enough for me to fix.
 However, when the code in question is migrated to HTTP client 4.3+, is
there any API for detecting that a missing keystore entry was the cause,
and providing user feedback such as "the server is using a SSL certificate
from Gandi, however this authority has no entry in the keystore" (I'd build
the message, but would need to have an API to query the certificate info).
