Subject RE: JDK 1.4 , JMeter and SSL ?
Date Tue, 10 Sep 2002 08:01:26 GMT

I have stepped through the email thread that Jochen posted and this is the particular item
that can help you [[ IF you are using an https server with a test certificate rather than
a certificate signed by a trust authority preconfigured into the JRE/JDK ]].

You will have to read it rather carefully:

Read just the authors' responses to the 'Where are the ssl.provider and ssl.pkgs located?'
question in the following two, right at the top of each. The rest of these postings is the
same as the above.

Don't forget Jochen's advice about setting port 443 as well as selecting HTTPS on your requests

This one from Jochen is also interesting in that he suggests using JSSE 1.0.3 with JDK 1.4.x,
rather than the JSSE built into JDK 1.4.x. Perhaps JDK 1.4.x contain a JSSE 1.0.2 equivalent:

after sending the mail I realised that I had saved all of these for the 
very reason I sent the mail ! doh. In your testing did you ever see an 
error like ' HTTPS hostname Wrong: should be <your 
url>' ? I have tried various combinations of specifically on the HTTPS 
request the host name, no host name, port number, no port number and 
nothing appears to be working !!! I noticed in the email that John sent 
you that he had the same error that I am getting but I couldn't see any 
resolution in any of the emails. Does anyone know what the cause of the 
Hostname error is or how to fix it ?

In the JMeter User mailing list you can read something about that:

Howdy All, 

Is there any changes require to the JMeters properties file required when 
using the JDK 1.4.1 (which includes the JSSE) ? As far as I can see in the file the entry's are still for the JSSE implementation 
in the JMeter build for 7th Sept 02.

Has anyone used the SSL functionality of the JDK 1.4.1 to test https sites
