I had a very quick look at JSSE, and it provides a new set of socket objects
which have to be used instead of the normal. I feel like it could be
integrated in the normal connector, but we'll have to look a little deeper
into that.
Do you know how John Shin plans to implement this ? Will he make use of
JSSE, or will he go one level below and use JCE (or some other equivalent
library) ?
